High Praise for The Bridge Builder

Check out one of the many great reviews of Rabbi Eckstein's new biography, The Bridge Builder, on Amazon: "This is a story of a real life hero. There are not too many in today's world that could even hold a candle to that term. But Rabbi Eckstein has made it his mission in life to create a bridge between the Christian and Jewish culture. One that would bring each into the other's lives by the deep roots that are shared. In an incredible tale of hardships, trials, and rejections we witness the amazing determination of one man. Rabbi Eckstein is a man of strength in the face of defeat, a warrior in a cultural battle. He wades through the misinformation and rallies back victorious as he lends a helping hand to the Jewish people in need. For his entire career he has helped the Christians understand the life of the Jewish people, and then provided the Christians with the means to administer help, by way of financial support. He was told that he was un-Orthodox, that he was trying to convert Jews to Christianity. In fact, Rabbi Eckstein just wanted the world of Jews and Christians to be on the same page. To garner a better understanding about each other. Journey through his life and legacy as you read about all of the fascinating people he has dealt with, worked with, and helped. This is a story that shows you a different side of life, one that you just might want to join in. This book was an inspiring read. I am amazed at the depths that Rabbi Eckstein has gone to bridge the gap between Christians and Jews. He has done untouchable amounts of assistance, financial and otherwise, for the Jewish people in his lifetime. I am so glad I took the chance to read this book, it is a book that anyone that claims to be a Zionist should take time to read." Learn more about Rabbi Eckstein’s biography at bridgebuilderbook.com. Click here to order your hardcover copy of The Bridge Builder, or click here to order a copy for Kindle.
