  1. This is such a wonderful book This is my second go round for this novel and I m so glad I decided to give it a re read Michener tells the story of the development of religion through a literary device of an archaeological dig in Israel The dig goes deeper and deeper until it reaches bedrock and then the story of the genesis of religion begins with hunter gatherer cave dwellers at the very dawn of the domestication of grain crops Going forward he tells the story of human experience on the same pi [...]


  2. This, in my opinion, is one of Michener s most important historically based fictional works He takes a very controversial subject, that of religion, and God, and gives it an entirely different reason for those that ever doubted to believe He goes to the beginning of those that experienced God for the 1st time and followed that family up into todays time It is amazing that he can take historic facts and intertwine them with fictitious characters, using them to explain one of the biggest unexplain [...]


  3. FINAL REVIEW OK I finished and I m GLAD I did The reading remained somewhat tedious through the 85% mark but as one might expect from an author of Michener s stature his intent gradually became crystal clear and, I guess, some of the tediosity was necessary He was building an analog in words of the archaeological site for which he describes a discovered history The analog IS a word picture for the Jewish peoples of the area of the Middle East and Europe with references to the American diaspora.U [...]


  4. This was the perfect book to read before I left for Israel, when I was in Israel, and after my trip to Israel It is 1200 pages and it did take several weeks to go through it I found it to be very entertaining and informative I could actually visualize the places that Michener drew us to with his historical stories I learned so much and a great time reading the chapters as I traveled through these areas It was a an added bonus to learn about various religions and understand how they are so interw [...]


  5. Returned for refund a little over twelve percent through the text I ve one word for this acclaimed book BORING Can t fathom why it won so many accolades This reviewer was not in the least impressed The author treats as fact what is, at best, conjecture Yes, this book proclaims it is fiction, but even fiction must be believable Part I the story of an archeological dig, wasn t too awful Since this reviewer has completed a few courses in archeology, this portion was a bit familiar in spite of the f [...]


  6. The book traces the rise of religion in general but primarily Judaism It is told, in typical Michener style, as a series of shorter interconnected stories I particularly appreciated the educational aspects of the novel as I learned a lot about foreign religions and cultures that I probably wouldn t have learned on my own Great book for a reader familiar with Michener s style and interested in religion and its roots.


  7. To say that this novel is a tour de force is a gross understatement The framework on which the story hangs is so vast that it covers the history of Galilee from almost 10000 years BC right up to 1964 Michener uses the ploy of an imaginary archeological dig based on a mound or tell in the South of what we now know as Israel In the depths of this mound is the detritus of succeeding generations and he uses these layers to describe the events that relate to each era We are taken from the time of cav [...]


  8. This is an old book, I once had a copy of this book when it was first published, over the years of lending, I lost it A book with stories of events that runs closely to the Bible, I never ever got to finishing this book but I remembered how the author mixed useful real world the information that filled in this book with his friction creations So well researched, that I used the information, whenever I see some artefact displayed in museum or private collections, to recollect the symbolic importa [...]
