I enjoy reading about other people's spiritual journeys, especially around Judaism. But as an observant Jew myself, it was very hard to get past the author's embarrassment about and apology for his Judaism. He doesn't seem to believe that anyone Jewish would read this book, or that anyone non-Jewish could respect the traditions that might be more alien to him. He claims to have back come to a closer connection with his own religion through his experiences visiting Christian churches, but sadly, that does not come across through his writing.
