The book is easy to read, dynamic and very well organized into topics.
L. F. Moura
The Karaites' perspective, albeit exteremly brief in this booklet, reveals the Karaite scholarly view and is well presented, logical and convincing.

Finally, a clear, concise, and long overdue introduction to Karaism that caters for the layperson and the student.
The book provides a simple defintion of Karaism and deftly explains what sets the Torah-based, Karaite Jews apart from the current main-stream Rabbinic Jews.
The Karaites' perspective, albeit exteremly brief in this booklet, reveals the Karaite scholarly view and is well presented, logical and convincing.
The authors also provide contact details for those who would like to study futher.
A great introduction to a fascinating field of study and a relatively unknown, but still active form of ancient Judaism.

This book gives a short but effective insight into their faith and doctrine. What I wanted to know was how they differed from rabbinic tradition and why. This book answered my questions and has given me reason to adjust my own messianic faith to more biblical practice of obedience to God's commandments.
Very pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone interested in a biblical concept of obedience to the Word of God.

Not a bad read. Verify for yourself. It reminds us not to be lazy. Our relationship with our God is worth taking time to study for ourselves what he requires of us.

The book proves its point, not by name calling, nor guilt, but by explaining just how things are, i wish all books were so.

I was easily able to track my order. My package arrived 5 days early. The package included additional related reading materials, which I am currently reading and find equally as informational as the book that I myself ordered. I ordered this book to gain a better understanding of the Karaite beliefs and customs. Due to Karaism not being as popular as other branches/forms of Judaism and other religions, it has been somewhat complication and confusing to try and gain a true understanding of Karaism and what it is. This book has been more than informational. It provided me with the answers I needed, including explanations that break down the many reasons for the beliefs/opinions of the Karaites. It also provided me with verses and other ways to research Karaits beliefs and ways to compare and contrast Karaism with other forms of Judaism. This book truly is 'a Brief Case for Karaism.' It will give you the basic understanding of Karaism, along with the resources to look further into the Karaite beliefs and customs. I am truly blessed to have come across this book in my quest for further understanding of Judaism, and more specifically Karaism. I will definitely consider more purchases through amazon and the Nazarite Site. Thank you sincerely... Isis

I liked this book and love the way it uses scripture to suport what they feel is right even thought I dissage with them on some points I think that many people can lean from this book and would recommend it to anyone it's very short and to the point and won't take much of your time.

While this book is interesting in seems to contain inaccurate information. On page 32 it implies that Karaites do not have Rabbis, which is not factual. In his book Shattering the Conspiracy of Silence he makes reference to speaking with a Kararite rabbi. (page 201)
