A Critique of The Source by James A. Michener

"The Source is a historical novel by James A. Michener, first published in 1965. It is a survey of the history of the Jewish people and the land of Israel from pre-monotheistic days to the birth of the modern State of Israel."

Inserted in a copy of The Source was found this anonymous Jewish response and critique of the book. An interesting read, the response, is an intelligent and detailed critique and correction of errors in the book in matters of Jewish Law. You can read it in it's entirety below:
