Moses the Heretic

Advance Praise    

Moses the Heretic by Daniel Spiro

At a time when religion and hypocrisy are increasingly linked, Moses Levine is an exception.  A modern-day prophet steeped in all three Abrahamic faiths, Levine is a rabbi for whom truth, justice, peace and passion aren’t slogans, but imperatives.  As his accomplishments increase, so does his fame, ultimately yielding him the Nobel Peace Prize.  But Levine has a secret, and if that secret should be revealed, he could be deemed the falsest of prophets.

In Moses Levine, Daniel Spiro has created a provocative and inspiring character who serves as a prism through which we may see how religion can be both constructive and destructive.  Set in Israel as well as the United States, Moses the Heretic takes the reader on a riveting ride through history, politics and theology, while laying bare one battleground of values after another.  The book also considers how the major events of our day might have changed with a man worthy of the name “Moses” in our midst. You may not agree with all the ideals Spiro propounds through his Moses, but after reading about him, you will never think of Judaism, Christianity or Islam the same way again.
