The Bridge Builder: The Life And Continuing Legacy of Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein REVIEW



Hey everyone! Today I am bringing you a fantastic review of "The Bridge Builder: The Life and Continuing Legacy of Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein." This is the account of a man who considered to be a true hero in the religious world, who has made it his life's work to bridge the worlds of the Christians and the Jews. "The Bridge Builder: The Live and Continuing Legacy of Rabbi Yechiel" is the account of his life, the hardships he faced, and the mountains he has had to climb. The book details how the Jewish community felt he was trying to convert Jews to Christianity, and how he showcased the plight of the Jews to Christians and gave them the ability to help if wanted. The funds raised have gone on to help Jews in need around the world.



Rabbi Eckstein founded the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews in 1983 to promote understanding between Jews and Christians and build broad support for Israel and other shared concerns. The Ministry's vision is a hope that both sides can overcome the 2000+ year division and come to a time of cooperation and understanding. In addition to several other meaningful projects,
they also create materials for teaching about the significance of connecting Israel and Christianity through such resources as A Woman of Valor: Celebrating The Proverbs 31 Women In Our Lives, A Man Of Faith: Reflections On Godly Leadership From The Ancient Shepherds Of Israel (both devotionals by Rabbi Eckstein), and Seven Fruits of Israel: Recipes And Devotions From The Holy Land (by Yael Eckstein).

Overall: 

Overall I found this to me an interesting book to read. It is inspiring to see one man's determination take him to such highs and lows, and to read how he overcame so much-whether you agree with his position or not.
