Admittedly, the author failed to properly leverage Hebrew terms and tint within the contexts for each chapter, which is a common result among those who have limited Judaic training and/or exposure to rabbinical academics. Howbeit, I respected the author's academic investments in this book. I, now, utilize this book, along with my personal rabbinical annotations, to teach my students. I especially note for my students my de-ciphers that identify the author's common cultural biases and the few academic short-comings. The author phrased the complexities between Judaic and the Goyiim Beloved in Messiah "... Jerusalem vs Athens ...".
At times I wanted to cry over the history and the things uncovered in this book (with plenty of references for further study). If some parts of your church experience made you kind of scratch your head because they were so out of line with the Old and even New Testament - this book is for you.
But be cautioned - its not for a new believer. This is definitely a "meat" and not "milk" type of book and one must be strong in their faith. Not because it tries to take you away from Christianity (it doesn't at all) or try to bind you with legalism (again, it doesn't at all) its just reading about things like the intentional changing of names (people in the Bible, names of books in the Bible, etc.) that you don't want to start to chew on too early in your walk.
A really really good book though, especially if you want a good historical basis for your Christian walk.
