Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a very practical guide to Noahide Torah study and action; it focuses on Noahide Torah learning in application and for making progress in everyday spiritual life. It is one of the best books on this universal subject for human ethical advancement and learning about the divine blueprint of reality. Self-empowerment, learned optimism and free association are encouraged by this publication which is the result of in-depth Torah learning: Stephen I. Ternyik/Beth Avraham/Munich
The Rainbow Covenant is the number one book on what it truly means to live in this world according to God's design. Easy to read and understand, Mr Dallen documents everything he writes with sources from Biblical, Talmudic, and other writings. I would strongly recommend this book to every person with a desire for education and learning on any level, regardless of their current beliefs. If you are searching for truth, you need this book.

Addressed to the young as well as the old, one may use this book which is packed with ancient wisdom as an excellent source for the classroom or prompt for further studies. Given the dearth of research on the subject matter it is a pioneer's work which, though occasionally controversial, is extremely well-documented and written. When reading just a few chapters of it, one can't help but fall in love with Judaism and the First Commandment, the ultimate root of the 7 Universal Laws and the very backbone of justice, freedom, and human dignity.
The Rainbow Covenant is excellent, I recommend it highly
||Rachav (Victoria, Australia)
The Rainbow Covenant is a well written and easily understood book, especially for the lay person. It explains many of the details of the Noahide laws and their application. At the end of each chapter all the references are supplied, along with further explanations, which I found most helpful.
I have a number of books on the Noahide Laws but this book is, in my opinion, the best one for anyone who is seeking to learn more about how to live by them than any of the previous books I have read on this subject.
If you buy no other book on the Noahide Laws, this is the one to buy.
The Rainbow Covenant is a gem of a
Its gifted author has done a remarkable job in
bringing together important primary source material on many profound
and eternal ideas. But that's not all. He does so in such an inventive,
creative way. Perhaps most dazzling, though, is the fact that this
book will be as nourishing to the scholar as it will be to the beginner.
Michael Dallen is an extremely talented educator.
Besides the Amazon review, above, the writer,
Arthur Kurzweil, also sent the author this personal note: I
just read, from cover to cover, your book. It's superb! I am now
asking my father, age 83, to read it.

A revolutionary, life-changing book
Michael Dallen's The Rainbow Covenant is a true roadmap
to a better world, a peaceful, dynamic, wholesome world. There are
laws, it explains, that apply to all people, regardless of their
faith or creed. And then, in beautifully simple terms, it lays out
those laws. This is a revolutionary, life-changing book.
— Suzanne Carrol (Dallas)
A life-changing book
When I was feeling lost during my search for
a spiritual home a few years ago, an acquaintance told me about
Noahism, the Bible's God-given Universal Law for all people. I began
searching for books on the subject and ultimately read quite a few;
The Rainbow Covenant is the best. Mr. Dallen writes on a holy subject
with reverence, intelligence, logic, clear analysis, and humor.
The book is a warm and loving introduction to God's universal moral
law. It is an education in itself, and is thoroughly researched.
A reader will take pleasure in learning how to get directly to classic
sources and will find joy in receiving accurate information on God's
universal moral absolutes. No one should be without this book. (It
also feels good in the hands; readers will know what I mean.)

"The" Guide to the 7 Laws
More in-depth than the Clorfene & Rogalsky-authored "Path of
the Righteous Gentile" and more reader-friendly than Aaron Lichtenstein's
"The Seven Laws of Noah," this book is really "the" guide to the 7 Laws. Whether you are a Jew or non-Jew; a practicing Ben/Bat Noach or one who is simply interested
in learning more, "The Rainbow Covenant" and its author, Michael
Ellias Dallen, will tell you all that you need to know. Also, visit
the accompanying Web site. . . .
Heather F., "World Traveler" (Orange County, California)
Finally, a book that is fit to be studied by
Noachides at many different levels. For the beginner the book is
written to provide clear and concise information on the Noachide
Laws. The Advanced student isn't excluded. The richness of Dallen's
research and notes provides years of study. This book is the ideal
textbook for a class on the Noachide Laws.

Explores and illuminates God's universal laws of morality
I have read Michael Dallen's book The Rainbow Covenant.
It is a very readable yetpainstakinglyresearched book exploring
and illuminating G-d's universal Laws of Morality according to Jewish
tradition. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in knowing
what Jewish tradition considers every human's obligations to G-d
and his fellow man.
— Rabbi Eliezer Cohen (Oak Park, Michigan)
A Must-Read for every Christian
I loved this book, and would recommend it to every Christian.
He has a friendly, well-researched but "non-schoolmastery" approach
to teaching this subject.
I wish more Christians understood "the law" as the Jewish Faith
does...as the "Teachings and Instructions of G-d that help you fly
straight like an arrow and hit the mark". (Sin is "missing the mark.")
Visualize a target, with G-d's righteousness as the "bullseye".
It is soooooo not the policeman idea that many Christians have about
So many things in Christainity would sound different if Christians
really understood the Jewish Faith and the historical, religious
and cultural basis which formed both Judaism and Christianity.
This book is a great INTRODUCTION to a subject that has been sorely
neglected in the Christian Faith...the Torah, the Commandments,
the "Everlasting Covenant" that G-d proclaimed as being "Not too
hard for you...it is neither in the heavens that someone should
have to bring it down for you, or across the Sea that someone should
have to go get it for you...it is very near you, it is in your mouth
and in your heart so you may obey it. You have before you the choices
of Life and Death...to live, follow these commandments" (My paraphrase,
Deut. 30 11-17) Jesus claimed that following the commandments would
lead to eternal life and the "Kingdom of Heaven/G-d" (which is NOT
"heaven" as Christianity teaches!). If Jesus taught, following the
commandments, that none would be abolished until the end of time,
and claimed them as the way to eternal life, then shouldn't every
Christian investigate the "Teachings and Instructions of G-d" (aka
the "law") and find out what we might be missing?
Every commandment of G-d was issued to help us learn to love Him
and to allow us to transcend our own wants and desires to become
more like Him. The Jewish Faith was the first to call us to become
more like G-d, rather than making the gods look like us. If becoming
more like G-d is your goal, this book will call you to a higher
and deeper walk with G-d.
A timely and wonderful book that will start you on the path to a
completely different understanding of the Bible and your relationship

At last -
What a joy to read this book about the Noachide laws!
As an observant jew, I have long searched for a book to give non-jewish
friends information about these little-known laws that is readable,
accurate, and interesting. Michael Dallen's book fits the bill to
a T and a bit more...
It is a wonderful primer for those who know nothing and yet has
enough information for an advanced student of the laws to continue
their studies. I was very happy to see the book explain and do away
with some common misconceptions regarding judaism and the noachide
laws, too. For those out there who maintain that there exists a
grand jewish conspiracy, with the jews putting themselves at top
and everyone else at the bottom this book explains in real, concrete,
practical terms what the seven laws of Noah really mean. The details
are to be worked out by every country by themself, as long as they
conform to the basic law. No jew will lord over others.
In fact, Dallen makes it clear that the only thing which really
distinguishes jews from non-jews is that jews must follow more laws,
and jews have more responsibility to their creator and the creation.
Most of the ethical/legal struggles of today are issues that have
already been debated from every possible angle and decisions have
been arrived at by jewish sages already hundreds of years ago. It
is not enough to read the bible, you must also know how to take
the general laws there and expound them into detailed laws. the
jews have inherited keys to interpretation direct from Mount Sinai.
Without those keys it is not possible to take something vague like
"love your neighbor as yourself" and know exactly what that means
in every possible situation. Terry Schiavo? The law has already
defined what is permissible there. Abortion? also. And what may
surprise the uninformed, the law is fluid and deals with each and
every nuance of circumstance.
I think Michael Dallen has also successfully depicted the beauty
of the law, so often described as being dry and legalistic. But
these laws express beauty in their apparent simplicity and yet complexity
of detail. They were meant to express harmony, harmony is their
nature, and a world of beauty (if they are lived) is their outcome.
Thank you for this book!

A wonderful, timely book
What does our Creator require of the Children
of Noah? 'The Rainbow Covenant' speaks to the heart of every human
being. As an observant Jew, I thought I knew this subject, but I
was amazed at the complexity of the details of these seven essential
universal principles. Presented in a very readable, engaging book,
there is a flow from one to the other, bringing a richness of the
scope of each one. For instance, the author brings a concept that
the negative commandments cannot be truly fulfilled without doing
the opposite--the positive: the opposite of blaspheming Gd is to
sanctify His Name. With the numerous pages of references notes,
this book can be studied time and again, on ever deeper levels.
Of the books on this subject, this is the best I have read. Every
so often a book comes into our world from Heaven; 'The Rainbow Covenant'
is one of these.

A must read for everyone - September 6, 2005
Michael Dallen's book, "The Rainbow Covenant" is a must read for
everyone. I have studied "The Seven Laws of Noah" for several years
and have found Michael Dallen's book a great read for both the novice
and the serious student. This book is both wide in scope and inclusive.
You do not need to be a religious person to read "The Rainbow Covenant"
for it is the stuff that nations are built on.
Terry D. King
Now, the True Rainbow Covenant for All
I have read The Rainbow Covenant by Dallen, it
is really an excellent work by a genius. The whole material presented
in a simple and effective for anybody to understand and follow the
The greatness of the book lies in the author's honesty with the
facts - Nothing has been changed, twisted or mutilated. This makes
this books a wonderful for reading - while traversing thru the Truth.
The more you go in depth the more you are involved in it. It is
a wonderful experience.
The Rainbow Covenant ultimately restores the proper mental, spiritual
attitude that is all important for man to connect with God.
A must read for everybody whether Jew or Gentile. It is an experience
worth going through The Rainbow Covenant.

Universal laws for all nations
The Rainbow Covenant is one of the best books
a person can buy on the Universal Laws outlined in the Torah (i.e.
Old Testament), for all nations to follow. For individuals wishing
to have a greater understanding of what God expects of us in our
day to day lives this book is a must read.

If you're looking for answers
The Rainbow Covenant by attorney Michael Dallen is one
of those books that once you've picked it up you just can't put
it down until you've devoured every word. He informs the reader
that the Ten Commandments were never intended for the non-Jew. However,
there is a standard for all of us. In ancient times it was known
as the Seven Laws for the Children of Noah.
If you're looking for answers, you absolutely must start with the
Rainbow Covenant. Even if I didn't acknowledge the existence of
a G-d, I'd have still recognized quickly that the contents of this
book were extremely beneficial. The first chapter alone was so powerful
that it sent a shock wave through me that could only be described
as the most intense spiritual arousal that I personally have experienced.
It was as though the Torah Laws were standing naked before me that
I might witness their incredible brilliance and beauty.
Finally, someone is ready to share with us what the G-d of Israel
expects of the non-Jew. Author Michael Dallen has made it easier
then ever to understand. Every page is filled with wisdom. . . .

Morally speaking -
I picked up this book at a friend's suggestion. It's rather easy
to read and provides an overview of the "Seven Universal Laws" that,
according to Jewish tradition, are to be observed by all nations
of the world.
If you're worried about your kids being a bit too influenced by
"Britney" et al., you'd be smart to grab a copy of this book. It
offers a roadmap to living a moral life and it lives up to its billing
as the "antidote to today's neo-paganism."

If you want to know what G-d expects of you -
If you want to know what G-d expects of you .
. . If you want to know what you're supposed to do in today's amoral
world . . . If you're looking for peace of mind, start with The
Rainbow Covenant. It's where you find ancient Torah truths written
in a style that is not only easy to understand but thoroughly enjoyable.
It has everything from idolatry to sacrilege and sex, all written
in a scholarly but enlightening way. The Rainbow Covenant became
the recipe for my personal growth through G-d's Laws. It was a fast
read that put me in touch with how G-d wants me to live my life.
I have come back to The Rainbow Covenant again and again. . . .
