Five Books - Multiplied

Recently, Ken Brown at the C. Orthodoxy blog issued a challenge to bibliobloggers:

Name the five books (or scholars) that had the most immediate and lasting influence on how you read the Bible.

Unlike many challenges, this one struck a chord, and a significant number of bloggers responded. And their choices can be found here.

This is a terrific opportunity to meet new bibliobloggers and add several book titles to your "wish list." I think you'll also find interesting the comments the bloggers made about their selected books. There was passion and a sense of gratitude for their encounter with each work.

I'll start thinking now about my Top 5. Why don't you do the same, and we'll compare our lists in a future post.

I thought you might be interested in learning about OUR Jewish traditions, one which has embraced the real Christ of the gospel, the Law and the prophets.

If this doesn't interest you, I apologize in advance.

If you are interested let me tell you that we are the Frankist Association of America. One of our members has a new book out:

Yes, we are a secret community. We have perpetuated ourselves without much attention. We are despised by Lubavitchers but our teachings have been passed on through generations nevertheless.

I am not that I am trying to sell you something. If you can't afford the book you can see the website of one of our teachers -

I just wanted to let you and the scholarly world that there have always been more than one type of Judaism in the world at any one time. Some forms of the faith had to learn to hide their beliefs in order to survive and perpetuate themselves.

Shalom, God Bless
Everything is perfect with God
