Is the Good Book Bad
With in-depth treatment of numerous passages from the Scripture, these and other topics from the Jewish Scripture troublesome to many 21st-century readers are analyzed in Is the Good Book Bad?
Stern also makes the case that a morality based on belief in God is more compelling than one based on scientific materialism. While the content and argumentation are unique and nuanced, he takes on modern-day criticism without making modern-day compromises on the authenticity of Scripture and how it was interpreted by the sages of the Talmud and the scholars who followed in their footsteps.
The author presents the various challenges that are made that question the morality of the Torah vis-à-vis the politically correct morality of the secular world, and he answers them in an extremely effective manner. The sources he quotes both in presentation of the challenges and in his presentation of the Torah sources in rebuttal are extremely impressive, and his vast scholarship in both areas is evident.
