Crusades and the Spanish Inuisition all the way to the founding of present day Israel and the Middle East conflictA sweeping chronology filled with excitementTHE PHILADELPHIA INUIRE.

The Source is a thing of beauty in its planning and intricacies This books is three things at once A novel a collection of short stories and a history of religion from ancient times through to the modern era and it works wonderfully on all three levels though it is best as a novel since every story actually ties together in the end much like one would expect human history to do Everything is connected and that includes us all as people Most of all though if you have any interest in Judaism the oldest of the Big Three this book is a journey you must take Same truth stands if you re interested in the conflict in the modern Middle East including the mentality of Arab vs Jew We didn t always hate each other you know In fact in the end we re all the same The book celebrates our differences while pointing a lot of this sameness out a sameness many of us would like to ignore because it s easier to hate those that are different From the time of Baal through Hellenistic and Roman rule from the crusades to the refugees from the Russian pogroms and Nazi Germany this book is a good introduction to history as well as a love story to a land that has served humans since before we had a concept of time itself A masterpiece
