Challenging Questions

Amos Lassen

The Bible has been academically studied for 200 years  and that study has confronted the believing Jew with the most challenging of questions: “Are the accounts of the Tanakh historically accurate? Was there an Exodus? Why does the Torah provide multiple versions of its law and its stories? What are the warrants for believing the Torah is a divine text? Can a Jew seeking intellectual honesty maintain fidelity to the Thirteen Principles of Faith?” Dr. Joshua Berman looks at this and addresses these issues.

This is the first full-length treatment of these charged issues by an Orthodox thinker and it provides an academically and traditionally based approach of spiritual and intellectual integrity for the believing Jew.
