Potok's history of the Jews is flat-out the best-written history of any people I've ever read. Some of it sprawling and vast, other parts poetically sparse -- the 100 word passage on the Holocaust is one of the most heartrending in the English language -- the work is a sweeping review of history.
Potok assumes truth in the scriptures, then goes to set the scene with copious bits of history. Even for those who reject Biblical stories, the scene-setting history is wonderful, and Potok's means of working in the thread of Biblical history gives a marvelous idea of what the history looks like to one who does believe.
The only major problem is that the book is not properly footnoted, so it is difficult to follow up on Potok's sources if you want to go more deeply into any of the many subjects he brings up.

This book is Potok's history of the Jews - specualtion based on archaelogy before recorded history and then on recorded history. It tells the story of the Jews and their wanderings and persecutions pretty thoroughly. While there might be some bias on Mr. Potok's part, there is no way to argue that these things did not happen. There are too many written records in the world. I was saddened to read of it and glad to know. I wish my parents had taught me these things. It gives one an enlightened understanding of the Jews.

Chaim Potok, as an excellent story teller, provides a detailed history of judism from Adam to Present, written in a flowing, story-teller fashion. The easiest way I know to get an interesting history of the Jewish people. An Excellent Book

Potok is a graceful writer who knows and loves his subject. This is a good book. The final chapter is something the reader will not soon forget.
