HaLevi's recounting of the Kuzari is certainly a classic of Jewish texts and an interesting read for those seeking to understand how Judaism supports its beliefs versus other religions, or just a debate about which religion is "right".

If you do read the book though, I warn you not to get this version. It is conveniently "abridged", with the translator leaving out major sections like that on Christianity, substituting a few pages with [a summary a few words long in brackets]. This version is intended to not be objectionable to the most Orthodox of Jewish readers who won't even tolerate a description of another religion when it's presented in context and even declared wrong along side. So skip this version and get one by a more academic publisher.

This book is now one of my top books that I enjoyed and will read over and over again. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a Jewish scholar, or interested in Jewish history, or would like to learn more of what Judaism is truly all about. The story is so captivating that I read it in 2 sittings in one day!
I was abit disappointed though with the condition of the book I purchased. It was listed as new but had some dents on the top and bottom of the binding and some of the pages had dirt or food spots on them.

Yehudah Halevi was an ancestor in my family. He wrote some very good words here. Somewhat hard to get through some of it but when you consider it was written in the Eleventh century it is amazing how good this is. Yehudah was a doctor and he was a Rabbi. He was open to the people and listened to everyone at their level. This book was written to a king. Yehudah was apologetically explaining the ways of Judaism to a king and trying to convert him.
If you study Kabbalah or Hermetics, you will really enjoy this because Yehudah was a Kabbalist and wrote many of the prayers in today's siddurs. His poems were sometimes sexual in their context. He was also a doctor and knew the language well. He was open to others and made friends of everyone in fact lived among Muslims as a Sephardic Jew.
