Bringing Alive Daily Life in the Bible, Fostering Interfaith Dialogue
Welcome! On this site you’ll find articles and blog posts based on my series of best-selling books covering all aspects of life in Old Testament and New Testament times, and commentary on current events in Israel through the often all-too-clouded prism of hope. You’ll also discover my first historical novel,The Scroll. It brings alive an amazing archaeological find – a divorce document issued at Masada. It’s the story of a young woman survivor of the Masada suicide pact, possessing only that document and a few coins, and how she and her descendants sought a life in which hope trumps extremism. Its characters face the twin challenges of implacable enemies from the outside coupled with the dreadful internal divisions that still plague us today. I hope this site will lead you to the deeper understanding of Scripture we all seek, and that it be a place where we foster interfaith and intercultural dialogue.
