Description

Rabbi Prof. Joshua Berman, professor of Bible at Bar-Ilan University joins the TRADITION Podcast to discuss his recent book, "Ani Maamin: Biblical Criticism, Historical Truth, and the Thirteen Principles of Faith" (Maggid Books). Berman joins TRADITION’s editor, Jeffrey Saks, to discuss issues of biblical criticism, the relationship of his identity as a leading academic with his role as a person of faith, how being trapped in certain modern assumptions prevent us from properly understanding Tanakh’s unique message as a religious text, and educational challenges that we face if bolstering belief in revelation and the divinity of the Torah.
