“In Torahism, Solberg not only defends Christianity in a winsome way, but he also does an excellent job of explaining why we believe what we believe. This is a great read!”
Are Christians required to keep the Law of Moses? What about the Ten Commandments? Was Jesus divine? Join author R. L. Solberg as he takes on a modern heresy and dives into these and other critical questions related to the Jewish roots of the Christian faith in his new book, Torahism: Are Christians Required to Keep the Law of Moses? (Buy it Now!)
It all began with a series of Facebook posts that an old friend posted just after Thanksgiving. He was aggressively taking Christians to task for celebrating the ‘pagan’ holiday of Christmas. This struck me as odd because I’d always known him and his wife to be strong Christians. And while I’ve debated with plenty of atheists over the alleged pagan roots of Christmas, I’d never heard this charge leveled by a fellow Christian. So I decided to chime in on his posts and soon discovered that I had stepped into a mystery of, well, biblical proportions…—R. L. Solberg
“Over a decade ago, I came to know Rob Solberg. He impressed me back then with his searching heart, scholarly mind, and passion for apologetics. He has now offered a masterful work, well researched and very well-argued. Were I still a seminary professor, I would require my students to write reviews on this volume.”
—Dr. Stephen Drake
“Engaging and well-developed content on a tough topic. Rob addresses lofty theological issues with incredible accessibility and application. He reminds us to not just stay in our heads and win arguments but to love people well as we fight for what is true.”
—Pastor Derek Bareman
“Phenomenal. I was captivated and engaged the whole time. This is such rich content that clearly shows Solberg has done his homework. I loved how he brought really weighty topics and made them comprehensible to those who perhaps have never explored them before.”
“This is an excellent, balanced, scholarly refutation of the heretical teaching of Torahism. Solberg does so with a wide array of Scripture, great Christian writers across the centuries, and impeccable logic. Not only does it address and answer the challenge of this new heresy, it serves as an apologetic in the best tradition of Christian scholarship. Exceptional work. I have reviewed thousands of books in 30 years. This book deserves to be read!”
—Rev. David “Doc” Kirby
“In the early days of my pastoral ministry, I came across a lay leader in my church who’s teaching was denying the Lordship of Jesus Christ. After that initial encounter, I learned that many people were falling victim to this type of dangerous teaching. I am so encouraged that Rob has written this important book which boldly confronts this heresy, yet compassionately points us to the truth of Jesus. This is a book that deserves to be read and shared with others.”
—Pastor Thomas Kelly
“Impressively written and researched! Aberrant theologies have existed throughout time, requiring trusted biblical guides to bring much-needed reproof. Solberg does this superbly in his book, Torahism. And, he accomplishes this task with much ‘gentleness and respect’ (1 Peter 3:15). Even if you are not immediately confronted with this heresy, a careful reading of Rob’s book will deepen your understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
—Ed Smith, Ph.D.
Excerpts from the Forward by Paul Wilkinson, Ph.D.
“The best conversations are those that happen spontaneously amongst sincere, passionate seekers wanting to learn, mature, and progress in their faith and life. R. L. Solberg has blessed us by inviting us into just such a conversation . . . This book is a read that flows because it originates in genuine conversations between friends and passionate believers. It is reminiscent of the ancient dialogues with questions, points, and counterpoints.
Solberg is winsome, challenging, and introspective. He does not assume he knows, rather he sincerely asks those of a differing opinion than him to help him think through the crucial implications of certain beliefs . . . I invite you into Rob and his friends’ conversation. I was challenged, encouraged, and taught by the insights Solberg brings to the fore. I pray that you heed his call to take seriously what it means for the Christian to live the godly life; to be like Jesus.”
