See What Everybody Is Saying!
These are the comments of Professor (Emeritus) Yair Zakovitch of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Professor Zakovitch was Dean of Humanities and Chairman of the Bible Department, and is considered one of the foremost internationally respected scholars in the field of Bible:
Dear Zvi, I enjoyed very much reading your book, The Lost Temple. The book, in which you have woven together your personal story along with your scholarly interest in the Mt. Ebal Temple, is filled with suspense and detective-work, making for an enjoyable and interesting read. The challenge you make to certain commonly accepted ideas cannot be easily dismissed by archaeologists or Bible scholars.
Dr. Yoel Rappel, Torah commentary on Israel Radio, on Weekly Torah portion:
“(The ideas) presented are unique, daring and thought-provoking. I finished the book in one sitting.”
Jordan Rich, Host of The Jordan Rich Show on WBZ 1030AM, Boston says,
“Thanks so much for that wonderful book and the inspiring interview. You’re leading a tough crusade, an uphill battle, but your scholarship and determination is sure to see you through to success”.
The late Prof. Running was Professor emerita of Biblical and Semitic Languages at Andrews University and the respected biographer of the renowned pioneer of archaeology in Israel, Dr. William Foxwell Albright.
Dear Zvi: Thank you ever so much for your beautiful book. I immediately dropped another project and began to read it between obligations. I finished it this morning at six o’clock after three sleepless hours, enjoying the remainder of it. You have done a tremendous job in writing it, weaving in history, geography, archaeology and personal biography in a most interesting way. You know, your reading and research through many years is equivalent to several PHD’s! Many thanks for your fascinating book –that often reads like a suspenseful who-dunnit!
Cordially, Leona G. Running, Ph.D.

Dear Zvi: Despite our theological differences, I praise your style of writing and, should you write another book, you may be sure I’ll be the first to read it. I am tired of theological or history books that are boring. You write with passion, and you get the reader involved, this is what I liked the most about your style. You should never stop writing, Zvi, please!
