The Gospel According To Moses is a pretty sharp book by a pretty sharp layman. His experience attending a Reformed Jewish temple for 5 years are valuable for all Christians. He does a good job of explaining the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. And his interactions with the Jewish congregation may put faces to a religion that many of us have not had much contact with. Dickson recitation of the church's sins against the Jews, and their quite justified fear of us, is a powerful reminder of the [...]

This is easily the best book I've read in recent memory. It brought new ideas and, more importantly, new questions. The writing style lends itself more to reading than to studying, but the progression of thought should be enough to excite any faith-filled scholar.This is a book which I will recommend for friends and reread for myself.

This book tells the story of one man's journey to understanding Jews as brothers. Athol Dickson began attending Chever Torah (literally "Torah group" - basically a Jewish bible study) five years before writing the book. Dickson makes the book very personal, and it makes it a joy to read - even for someone who is more familiar with the material. I think the most important lesson is summarized in this story:Rabbi Zimmerman is away this Shabbat morning, so Rabbi David Stern leads Chever Torah in hi [...]

Interesting book written by an evangelical layman who writes about the 5 years he's been going to Chever Torah. I thought it was honest and had a lot of good insights on how people from both religious groups see and stereotype eachother and eachother's beliefs, and why a lot of them are wrong. Although the author's dream audience would be a mix of Jewish and Christian readers, I'd wager the VAST majority of people who read the book would fall under the second category. Still, a very good read ev [...]

I absolutely loved this bookere was a sense of relief that the questions that I've wrestled with in Scripture were "OK"is book gave me the freedom to question the Text and find that the answers are beautiful, wonderful, and oftentimes elusive![return][return]The questions that Dickson chose to use in his book are fascinating and at times uncomfortabled then you realize that 'in God' there truly is freedomeedom to question, to argue, to wrestle be in awe[return][return]Can't recommend this book e [...]

This book was an interesting interfaith study that highlighted both the similarities and differences between mainline Christianity and reformed Judaism. Athol's tension with his theology and the Jewish insights into the scriptures was very familiar to me. Of particular interest to me, was the way in which Athol learned that all questions were allowed in his Chever Torah class. They (the students) were allowed and encouraged to ask the most difficult theological questions with reprecussion. I als [...]

I liked this book a breat deal. It made me look at things from a different perspective. But I wouild caution that this book is not for everyone. Whether Jew or Christian, I wouild recommend you have some level of Biblical knowledge prior to reading the book. Natrually, the bulk of the book is based on the Tanak or Old Testament. But please do not let that deter you from reading the book with an open mind.

This book was so awesome. It has made me really look at Judaism and dispensationalism. As Christians we are taught "everyone needs to be saved"- but what about the promises God made to the Jews specifically? What we see as works (keeping Shabbot, keeping kosher) they see as following the laws and ordinances God has given specifically to them.It has changed my theology enough to make my friends crazy!

Excellent book and highly recommended. Several times in the book I thought I would end up disagreeing with Athol, but as he explained his point, I found that we usually ended up in agreement. There are a few minor points I don't agree, but overall, I consider this book as a must read for any Christian, Jew, or anyone else.

Very challenging and educational. This is not an easy read, and can actually be used as a Bible study, though it depends on the translation of Bible you have (I do not recommend using the NIV for this). Teaches Christians how to "wrestle with God" as the Jews have always done, and to question typical ideas of who and what God is. Have an open mind, and give this one time to really sink in.

This is an honest look at the differences and similarities between Judaism and Christianity. It also addresses (and provides answers for) some of the common misconceptions Jews and Christians have about one another's faiths. I was pleased to learn a lot about Judaism as well as discover some ideas that I can wrestle with about my own faith.

I think its an excellent book. Its great to be able to use the knowledge of anothet culture to understand God better and I love that the book addresses bold meaningful questions rather than simply a storyline

I thought this was a good read. explained a lot about how judaism and christianity are alike, and how the differ. My favorite part was about the Shema, how from one jewish phrase you get the attributes of God intertwined as a whole.

This is a Christian author who spends some time with some Jewish guys and listens more than talks. Sort of original. Makes you rethink Judaism and Christianity.
