*Some of the material in these books will sound foreign to believers, and some even disagree with certain tenets of Christianity. I share these books because I believe they are helpful in gaining a Hebrew perspective in our understanding of Scripture. The Bible is a Hebrew book written by Hebrew people, even the New Testament. In order to rightly understand Scripture, we must approach it with a Hebrew and not a Western or Greek way of thinking. I encourage you to study, look up verses, and if something doesn’t sit right, disregard it and continue to learn. All of these books are written by traditional Jews, and you will notice some books are linked to Christian Book Distributors.
