Description of the book "From Mount Sinai to the Catskill Mountains: A Mirror Image of Religion in America in the Twenty-First Century":Dr. Klein follows up his full-length books, Through the Name of God, a new road to the origin of Judaism and Christianity and In the Shadow of the Pulpit, an anecdotal autobiography, coauthored with his wife, Ann.
In From Mount Sinai to the Catskill Mountains Dr. Klein provides a mirror image of religion in America in the beginning of the twenty-first century through reflecting on the relevance of the Ten Commandments and the aspirations of the Standards for religious practice to guide the institutions and their congregants. Although these Standards are intended for one segment of the American religious community PDF, through the lenses of Dr.
Klein's microscope it becomes clear how wide the gap is between the aspiration of Standards and the state of religious practices at the time when clergy and religion are under strict scrutiny.
