Interpreting Torah as a Sacred Challenge

By Gordon Tucker

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2002

The author sympathizes with the many who have difficulty accepting myth as an adequate grounding for religion in general and, consequently, with the facticity of the Torah narrative in particular. While the author honors this unease, he simultaneously offers possible answers for giving deference to the authority of the Torah.
