Overview

"Years ago I exposed myself to the possibility that Judaism might have great truths to offer, and Chever Torah (Jewish Bible study) rewarded my open mind with radical improvements in the way I live and view my Christian faith." -from the Introduction
After he spent five years attending Chever Torah, Athol Dickson found his faith radically changed-the result being a deeper relationship with God. In beautiful and simple language, The Gospel according to Moses illustrates Dickson's journey of faith exploring some of the primary theological differences and similarities between Christianity and Judaism. He draws generously on both Old and New Testament scriptures, looking at Christian and Jewish perspectives on topics such as suffering, grace vs. works, and the place of Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A Christian mystery writer, Dickson (They Shall See God; Every Hidden Thing) here offers a nonfiction book on his spiritual odyssey as an evangelical Christian participating in a Jewish Bible study group. Dickson attended a "Chever Torah" for several years at a large Reform Jewish synagogue at the invitation of a friend. Here he received the background needed to cast a woman Reform rabbi as a protagonist in They Shall See God, but, more important, he also learned "about the stubborn tendency of our religions to focus on preconceived notions instead of really listening to each other." He discusses the Midrash and Talmudic literature extensively in terms of Christian evangelical theology's perspective on the messianic prophecies of the Old Testament. Fairly extensive descriptions of the group's discussions make this book more scholarly than personal. From Reform Judaism Dickson learns how to ask questions and face difficult paradoxes within his own faith. Though he makes a strong statement of Christian faith in the final chapters, he does not proselytize. This book will appeal to students of comparative religion; for large public and academic libraries.-Richard S. Watts, San Bernardino Cty. Lib., CA Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.

    The gosoel by moses

    I thought this was a very comprehensive book combing the talmud and the gospel; but only the talmud and its 316 laws can only go so far! This book is a very good read as only Dickson can do!
