We meet bi-monthly with a local group of believers on the Sabbath and our most recent time we began a new series called “In the Dust of the Rabbi.”
Wow. This is extremely moving, convicting and enlightening. Mr Vander Laan is very easy to listen to and excellent at conveying his thoughts.
Rather than try to explain it myself, I will just give you the description from the Amazon website:
