I'm not familiar with the Puppets book, but the Nazarene is a Christian book, not Jewish.

I know that The Nazarene is about New Testament figures, but the author was Jewish (not at all Christian) and that is why I posted it.  I know he got a lot of criticism for writing it as some of his faith thought it was inappropriate and actually promoted the Christian faith.  However, many Christians would not claim a book written about New Testament events by an outsider of the faith as "Christian".  If he did convert before writing the book, I never heard of it.  So it is about NT events, but penned by a well-known Jewish writer. 

The Naked Puppets is a book about the Concentration Camps at Auschwitz and is held by The Holocaust Historiography Project-more online!

You should post your deal in the book bazaar or the Christian book thread.

Thanks for the tip-I will do that right now as I need to clear my shelf!  I didn't think of it because I only know Jews that own it.

I have read a couple of Shalom Asch's books. He wrote mostly in Hebrew and Yiddish. He was a playwright also. He was a Polish-American Jew. Christians would be mostly unfamiliar with his works. He is more known to Israelis I would say.
