This review is provided by my wife, since her current academic pursuits are related to life coaching and she holds a master’s degree in biblical counseling.
This book gives a mysterious tale wrapped in riddles. While enjoyable at times, much like the cavern scene in The Hobbit, the unfortunate circumstance in this case is the reader’s connection to the narrator, in which it reads much like a manuscript discovered, with the riddles saved for the audience.
Being a former Christian and Messianic Jew and now a practicing Orthodox Jew, I thought this book would be perfect for me to read and review. In fact, I acquire an advance reader copy of the text when I was leaving the evangelical fold for Judaism. This book did not do anything to reconcile my concerns and issues I found within the Jesus camp.
