Helpful Score: 2
This was an interesting book and a quick read. However, it felt like a synopsis of the Hebrew Scriptures. I wish the author would have spent more time discussing how the Jews "changed the way everyone thinks and feels." It seemed like he was making a great background case and then the book ended rather abruptly. Still a great primer to the history of the ancient world and the Hebrew people.

interesting history from the author of how the irish saved civilization, though from aperspective of an irish descendant, and not a jewish one, not as rewarding on a personal level. very rewarding as far as knowledge of the culture and history are concerned.
