I love Chaim Potok. I have read and enjoyed "The Chosen", "The Promise", "My Name is Asher Lev", and "The Gift of Asher Lev", but I found this book very difficult to read, and finally gave up after about 100 pages. It is a personal history of the Jews (Potok was many things, but he was not an historian), a mixture of history, anthropology, biblical study, and personal opinion, and I found the style highly idiosyncratic. However, the reproductions, photographs, and illustrations are wonderful. It is a big book that you can put on your coffee table for guests to thumb through, but not to read!
