Summary
At the heart of the Jewish and Christian faiths lie the five books of the Torah, a text that has had enormous influence on Western ethics, politics, family, art and spiritual guidance. Kaminsky and Lohr explore how Jews and Christians have each read this common scripture, examining key debates and different interpretations. Enduring questions regarding the the authorship and historicity of the Torah are considered alongside more contemporary concerns such as reconciling difficult passages with modern values
