Some of the authors' arguments about ethical monotheism's superiority to secular humanism and other systems of thought are conclusory--they set up straw targets and then knock them down too easily and quickly. In spite of that, I enjoyed the book because it opened a window onto Jewish perspective with which I am largely unfamiliar (I am a non Jew) and it is nice to learn about something that's so important to so many people, even though I understand that the authors can't speak for every one of the millions of Jews in the world. The writing style is very accessible and conversational, as well as thought-provoking, in that the authors' thoughtful and earnest statements of belief push the reader to ask what she herself believes.
