From a review:

I found this book very informative. Unfortunately today too many mainline denominations are unaware of their Jewish heritage and as a result, they are often confused by the translations they read. Researching older documents and studying books such as this can help greatly to uncover obscure facts. This book alone is not the only source for answers but it does help in gaining understanding.
