Were I Jewish, I would probably give this book a higher rating, because while some of the book is highly relevant to anyone interested in learning about Judaism, some of it is really only relevant to the Jewish reader. The first half of the book, questions 1 - 4, were fascinating and well written...
Can one doubt God's existence and still be a good Jew? Why do we need organized religion or Jewish Laws - Isn't it enough to be a good person? If Judaism is supposed to make you a better person, how do we account for unethical religious Jews and for ethical people who are not religious? And most fascinating: How does Judaism differ from Christianity, Marxism and Communism, and Humanism? ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0671622617, Paperback)

If you have ever wondered what being born Jewish should mean to you; if you want to find out more about the nature of Judaism, or explain it to a friend; if you are thinking about how Judaism can connect with the rest of your life -- this is the first book you should own. It poses, and thoughtfully addresses, questions like these:

Can one doubt God's existence and still be a good Jew?

Why do we need organized religion?

Why shouldn't I intermarry?

What is the reason for dietary laws?

How do I start practicing Judaism?

The Nine Questions People Ask About Judaism was written for the educated, skeptical, searching Jew, and for the non-Jew who wants to understand the meaning of Judaism. It has become a classic and very widely read introduction to the oldest living religion. Concisely and engagingly, authors Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin present Judaism as the rational, moral alternative for contemporary man.
