Product Description

After spending five years attending a Hebrew Scripture study group, Chever Torah, evangelical Christian Athol Dickson decided to write a book that might create a genuine encounter between Christian and Jewish interpretations of Scripture. With simple yet profound language, this book investigates some of the primary theological differences between Christianity and Judaism as well as the common ground. Passionately tied to scriptural text, each chapter looks at Christian and Jewish perspectives on various topics as the implications for all readers are explored. For Jewish readers, Dickson presents Christianity as "a reasonable response to the books of Moses, the writings, and the prophets." For Christian readers, the book is offered as "a welcome confirmation that the most basic tenets of our faith are rooted in the earliest moments of creation, in the Garden, in the cool of the day."

Publisher's Description

"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.

    This is such a great book! I found Dickson's reflections to be deep, humorous, warm and caring - all great marks of a tremendous writer. I especially appreciated his insights into their Bible study method - most Christians seem to want to come to an immediate agreement whereas his group seemed to go to great lengths to offend each other. Yet, this caused for a deeper discussion and there's something to be said for that.

    This would be a great read for any Jew or Christian who is seeking to understand more about those who profess a similar faith in the 39 books of Hebrew Scripture but have a different understanding of the New Testament's 27.

    I really appreciated Dickson's very frank sharing about the struggles and personal lessons as he went through the Chever Torah with his Jewish friends. It certainly helps me appreciate our Jewish brethren and opens up my heart to learn from them how the richness of their faith and practices can be applied to my own life. Thanks for the sharing...

    After reading the first 20 pages on line, I bought 2, one for myself and one for a Jewish friend of mine. Wonderful book, easy reading, very educational. I get a lot of teaching on how the Old Testament is fulfilled in the New Testament at Christian Bible study, but Athol Dickson shows how similar most of the Hebrew teachings are to the Christian teachings. I bought this book for my Jewish friend to help us become more understanding friends.

    This was a wonderful inspiring, thought-provoking and engaging book. I have referred to it many times over different occasions. It has also spurred me on to further reading and research. Athol Dickson is one of my very favorite authors!

    This book is a must read for follower of Jesus and Moses alike! This not a book about converting from one faith to the other but about understanding for two faiths that share so much history. Nor is there intent to offend. Athol only wants to bring God's two families closer together. To show we both honestly love God.For the followers of Jesus, there is a lot we can learn from the first family of God and Athol lays it before us in very easy to understand terms. He shows us how our faith builds on that of Abraham and how we should interact with our Father, who and what He is (and is not), and even what He can and can not do, all for our sake.A follower of Moses can also learn about how we perceive God and why we perceive him and Jesus the way we do, without any hidden attempts at conversion. Here a Jew can learn the true tenants of our faith and may discover some very interesting, purely Jewish insight into the Torah. (I personally would like to thank you for this Jewish insight)As this book points out, we really aren't as different as we've been lead to believe. We share in our basic beliefs, the very same foundation stones. What differs is what is built upon them. Many Jews and Christians alike would probably be surprised to find there is often more of Jesus in some Synagogues than there is in many churches.Anyone willing to let go and ask God an honest, heartfelt question will find this a thoroughly enlightening and enjoyable book!
