A gem hidden in history

If your are black, hebrew, or simply a person of faith, then this book is a must read. To see gods Providence and mighty hand at work. To pull a hellanistic Hebrew from his culture simply so he can learn of the Love of Yahoshua is pure love from the father.

Eloquent and informative

This is an excellent narrative and point of view of life in the late 1700's. The reading too, is exceptional.
