A beautiful inspirational book - Tobit is a righteous man who fears God and obeys His commandments. He is rewarded richly for his good deeds. The story shows that living by faith is a journey full of hardship and challenges. however, Tobit`s living faith brings him consolation despite every temptation, insult or mockery he receives from non-believers.

Recommends it for: Those open to reading Jewish/Christian Apocryphal Texts;Catholic or Orthodox Christians.
I thought that it was an interesting story that showed that those who tried their best to do good would one day be rewarded.

To me it seems to emphasize the importance of:
*trying to live a life of righteousness
*trying to steer away from the temptations of sin
*not being filled with greed

Tobit is a apocryphal/deuterocanonical scripture that is not included in all versions of the Christian Bible.

Interesting read. As a Protestant, though I haven't studied the apocrypha and why it isn't considered scripture, I thought I'd give it a read. It feels different from much of the Old Testament. It reads much like Ruth or Esther - more of a novelized story. It seems like it could have happened, I believe God certainly could and may have worked in this way in these people's lives. The teaching, living righteously, giving to the poor, etc, was sound and not unbiblical.

This is the first apocryphal book that I have read. It was alright, full of instructions for righteous living etc,, but I felt that the author had an inflated view of his righteousness, seemed a little full of himself with little compassion or concern for others.
