Reclaiming Our Forgotten Heritage by Curt Landry – Book Review
If you are interested in learning more about the historical and cultural aspects of Judaism so that you can gain a richer understanding of the Bible and Christianity, you might be surprised to learn that this really isn’t the focal point of Reclaiming Our Forgotten Heritage: How Understanding The Jewish Roots Of Christianity Can Transform Your Faith!
Instead, Reclaiming Our Forgotten Heritage provides us with more of an autobiographical look at the life of Curt Landry – a man who was adopted from a Catholic orphanage in the 1950s when his unwed Catholic father and Jewish mother decide they are unable to raise him.
The book shows how his personal experiences and key encounters at pivotal moments in his life ultimately led him to God, his birth father, the discovery that he was half Jewish, and into ministry.
One of the overarching themes in this book, based on his personal experience, is how our family history and life experiences combine to impact our spiritual identity.
Our spiritual identity is placed deep within us, and it doesn’t come out by accident. It’s something we have to discover, step into, and manifest. It demands choosing to see ourselves from the perspective of heaven and overcoming the influence of the world around us.
While the author provides theological insights towards the latter half of the book, the overall content did not quite match what I expected based on the title.
Nonetheless, from an autobiographical perspective, I enjoyed reading Curt’s story and his unique perspective on spiritual identity.
I rate this book 3.5 out of 5 stars.
