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 Jewis h 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."
