This account of the Jewish people and their faith is as compelling and absorbing as any of Herman Wouk's novels. For Jewish and Christian readers alike, it is informative because Judaism is the source of all Western religion. Many listeners will find its chief value in the highly candid personal statement of faith by a major American author. Wouk's novels and plays have gained him a world audience. His books have been translated into 15 languages, and he has won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
