I really enjoyed reading this book. There is food for thought on almost every page and for that reason it's not a book to fly through. It's not slow going by any means but I wanted to put the book down at some points and just think. This book is a great reminder of why I love being a Jew, but it's a book for anyone really, it advocates action rather than intention and reinforces the idea that being human and striving to do the best you can with what you've got is a blessing. Yishar Koach Rabbi.

I enjoy this rabbi's books so much. The reader doesn't need to be Jewish nor even attend any worship services to benefit from reading and obtaining spiritual guidance, reminders of keeping to a values-filled life, and looking at matters from multi-religious perspectives.

Rabbi Shmuley, does a great job explaining values from a Jewish perspective which I found to be so relevant. Having been in church life for 20 years which in included earning a Bible college degree I really love the depth and richness found in the Jewish way of seeing HaShem and the world. If Christian's could realise that Yeshua was Jewish we would realise that the Jewish people are a gift to the world in making it a better place.

I loved this book. I originally bought it for my Kindle. Ended up purchasing a hard copy for myself and just purchased two hardback copies from Amazon to give as gifts. Rabbi Shmuley Boteach gives you so much to think about that I found myself re-reading paragraphs (just to be sure that 'I got it'), then turning off my Kindle and just.....thinking. This book speaks to all ages and religions and would be a wonderful addition to anyone's bookshelf.
Well written. Thought provoking. Informative. Great book.

This book is amazing, I keep going back and looking over several passages. It needs to be read in increments and pondered over. I think anyone and everyone could benefit from this book. It covers many subjects, many situations. A guide for day to day living. Down to earth wisdom for our times!

Rabbi, while you have good points to ponder some of your foundations and assumptions are incorrect and as a result, your conclusions are wrong. Just one example, in Redemption, you claim that "Christians emphasize salvation, or the need for man to become spiritual--to refine his character and earn a place in heaven." False. Christians do "emphasize" salvation, but there is nothing man can do to become "spiritual" or to "earn a place in heaven." Instead, only through acceptance of Jesus as Messiah and redeemer, and as the fulfillment of Torah, can we enter into heaven. In other words, there are no earthly works we can do to earn our place. Our place in heaven is granted by the grace of G-d. It is G-d's love of us that get's us into heaven, not the other way around.
