5) What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
May we see an intro?
 Living in both the Jewish world and the Mormon world I have
come to know how closely related they are and yet they seem
 miles apart. Read about the culture
of the Mormons and the Jews

                 Part of the intro---

Living in both worlds, I have come to understand that the 
God of Abraham, Jacob and Moses is the same God of 
Joseph Smith, Brigham Young and Thomas S. Monson.
 It is fascinating to study both worlds and how they relate to each other.
