The Gifts of the Jews: How a Tribe of Desert Nomads Changed the Way Everyone Thinks and Feels
From time-to-time in history, an individual or a comparatively small group of people exercise an enormous influence on the history of the world. These historical “moments” can even impact the way we think and the way we perceive our lives and our relationship with the universe. The early Hebrews, according to Thomas Cahill, are one of these groups and, in offering us a different human relationship with God, have had a transformative and permanent impact on all of humanity. In his sermon, Dave will discuss concepts outlined in Cahill’s book, their impact on our ancestors, their impact on ourselves, and their role in the development of present-day Unitarian Universalism.
