Rabbi Dr. Joshua Berman, a professor of Bible at Bar-Ilan University, has written the book many of us have been waiting to read. An expert in the Bible as well as post Biblical Jewish and Near Eastern studies, he challenges the critics who take issue with the Torah as divinely sourced. Can we use both academics and tradition to develop our understanding of historical truth and still hold onto our principles of faith?
His book is called Ani Ma’amin: Biblical Criticism, Historical Truth and the Thirteen Principles of Faith. “Ani Maamin” means “I Believe.” Put your surety down before you pick up this book.
