The writer of this book is a fellow ger and a tzadik for putting this together. He and the sources he quotes have dried my tears many nights and one day I would love to have the opportunity to tell him exactly how much this book means to me and other gerim. If you are in the process of conversion or even a Ger already, please do yourself a favor and buy this book. You will not regret it.
Inspiring and uplifting, this book should be in every convert's library.
It discusses where, often, a convert to Judaism might come from. The motivation, the obstacles and difficulties, one might find and have to overcome. It is not in the least bit cynical or disappointed, while still, also, revealing the importance of recognizing these qualities and respecting, appropriately, those who journey into the Jewish people from outside the fold.
It is for those who are converts and those born as Jews, and demonstrates how a person may reconcile those cultural distinctions that sometimes divide, rather than draw nearer, one to the other.
Every jew that couches converts or that wants to understand what a convert is and how to help them should study this book and ponder upon the information presented here.
Probably a bit more of expounding on the halachah on gerim would enhance the book.
