Review 2 for The Emergence of Judaism
Date:November 5, 2010
This book is written from a fairy liberal perspective which is a little discouraging, but it does have good information. If you are able to discern what is good and bad in this book you will do fine, if you know nothing about Jewish history, then I would avoid it
