“Most Christians—myself certainly included—have so much to learn from the Jewish tradition and the study of the Torah, and from Judaism’s respect for the law and value on ritual and connection within their community. … This book is a gift for every Christian, anchoring us to a beautiful shared history that can deepen and enrich our understanding and our faith.” ~ Shauna Niequist, best-selling author and speaker
