Thousands of American Jews were drawn to Christian Science and other New Thought teachings at the turn of the 20th century along with countless Christians. The growing popularity of New Thought teachings among American Jews concerned Jewish leaders of the time, including American Reform Rabbi Alfred Geiger Moses, who decided to do something about it. Seeing much in New Thought teachings that could be adapted to Judaism, once stripped of its Christian elements, Rabbi Moses first published Jewish Science in 1916. The author spends much time showing that the precepts of Christian Science and other New Thought denominations are drawn largely from the Hebrew scriptures.
This newly designed edition includes an extensive anthology of Hebrew scripture quotations from a New Thought perspective, and a new introduction by the editor.
