Reviews - Crash Course in Jewish History - by Ken Spiro

Kaitlyn's Review (Five Stars) wrote:
What an impactful experience. It was amazing to read an historical account of world history from the traditional Jewish perspective that all of human history is a controlled process leading to a destination, design by G-d of Israel who acts in history. There were so many illuminating aspects, especially relative to a western, Christian history presented to me in school. The end of the book invoked a lot of anger toward how the actions of Israel are presented to the world in comparison to the actual events, and the continual barrage of injustices that have been continually dealt Israel throughout history.

It left me hungry for more of this!

Zvi's Review (Five Stars) wrote:
A very interesting read from an Orthodox Jewish perspective. I was upset to finish the book and am I am looking forward to Ken's next book.

The History is written in simple English with interesting anecdotes from History a must read for anyone interested in this subject.

Online Review (Five Stars) wrote:
From Abraham and the birth of monotheism to the Holocaust and the creations of modern Israel the Jewish people's progress through time violates all the laws of human history. For centuries, some of the greatest minds have come to appreciate the profound impact that this tiny nation has had on humanity and have tried to unlock the great mystery that the Jewish story presents, asking: How did this people survive against all the odds? Crash Course in Jewish History explores the 3,800 years of Jewish existence while answering the great question: Why have the Jewish people been so unique and influential yet so relentlessly hated and persecuted? This volume is not only comprehensive and readable; it is also entertaining and enlightening. Historian and author Rabbi Ken Spiro takes the reader on a fascinating and informative journey through time, highlighting the key lessons of Jewish and world history, and most importantly, the profound relevance that the past holds for the future of both the Jewish people and humanity. Novices and scholars alike will find this book to be thought-provoking and insightful a valuable guide to understanding the challenges we face in the 21st century.
