The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi
My Journey into the Heart of Scriptural Faith and the Land Where It All Began
An instant New York Times bestseller! Journey with Kathie Lee Gifford and Messianic Rabbi Jason Sobel into Israel and explore the deep roots of the Christian faith.
As a lifelong student of Scripture, Kathie Lee Gifford has always desired a deeper understanding of God’s Word and a deeper knowledge of God Himself. But it wasn’t until she began studying the biblical texts in their original Hebrew and Greek—along with actually hiking the ancient paths of Israel—that she found the fulfillment of those desires.
Now you can walk with Kathie on a journey through the spiritual foundations of her faith:
The Rock (Jesus Christ): Hear directly from Kathie about her life-changing and ever-deepening connection with Jesus, the Lover of her soul.The Road (Israel): Explore dozens of ancient landmarks and historical sites from Israel, the promised land of God’s covenant.The Rabbi (God’s Word): Go beyond a Sunday-school approach to the Bible by digging into the original languages and deeper meanings of the Holy Scriptures.
As you journey through The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi, you’ll also find additional content from Messianic Rabbi Jason Sobel throughout the book. Jason’s insight into the Hebrew language, culture, and heritage will open your eyes to the Bible like never before.
Begin your journey toward a deeper faith through The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi.
Emmy-winning TV host and author Gifford (I Can't Believe I Said That) collaborates with Sobel, a rabbi and founder of Global Fusion, in this thoughtful exploration of faith. Starting with the story of David and Goliath, Gifford posits that "religion is nothing without relationship" and subtly carries the theme throughout each chapter as she follows the life of Jesus from his birth to resurrection. Sobel expounds upon Gifford's words by providing historical and scriptural context, while clarifying the significance of various biblical locations and the meaning of words and numbers used in the original text of the Bible. In addition to sharing how she reinvigorated her faith she began a life-changing routine of praying in the early morning after hearing the call of God Gifford makes a strong argument (grounded in her scriptural exegesis with Sobel) for increased feminism around the world "because of the value He placed on the women He met during His lifetime." To make her point, she collects accounts of Jesus' advocacy and interactions with women during a time when women were deemed the property of their fathers and husbands. Spiritually invigorating and informative, this approachable book will appeal to general readers of biblical history and ancient Jewish culture.
Thanks for teaching me so much about your trip. Always a blessing to get first hand experiences about the Holy Land.
This book takes you on a journey that allows you to fall in Love all over again with Jesus!!!
