So, if you buy this book (or are thinking about buying it), be prepared for some "sermonizing". Don't get me wrong - I'm pretty much in lock-step agreement with Marrs' views. It's only that the book title (and the "back cover" information) don't really prepare you for what Marrs has in store. In fact, Marrs would probably have been better off starting out with his theological premise, and then later on introducing the whole "DNA/ Khazaria" thing, as the latter tends to support the former - not the other way around.
Beyond this disconnect between the title and the content, the book suffers from endless repetition, and a certain lack of citations to allegations made. Perhaps "repetition" is Marrs' way of trying to make a point "stick" in the mind of the reader, but at some point - gimme a break! With 46 books to his credit (I'm guessing that he's "grinding 'em out" at the rate of about 2 per year) Marrs might better serve his audience with quality, versus quantity.
I agonized over "4 stars, or 3 stars", but in the end decided on the 4-star rating because Marrs does provide a compelling argument regarding the misguided agenda of the earthly Zionists.
A bit tedious in that it repeats itself several times, as the author seeks to examine what the testing results means for Jews and non-Jews based upon claims to be the descendants of the ancient Israelites and heritors of their lands and faith.
With that caveat I would say it is worth reading for those interested in what modern science is finding in relation to various myths and histories that have been uncritically accepted in the past.
