The book is a modified version of a Ph.D. dissertation. It has been "cleaned up" a little to make it more easily read but be aware, it is still academic writing and therefore not an easy read. The dissertation title was; "Similarities and differences in early Christianity and the Hasidic sects of Judaism and the search for common ground." Here is a sample from the abstract.
Yeshua (Jesus), was not a modern Christian or a modern Jew in a real or religious sense, yet He belongs to both groups. From the Jews He came, and He remains a Jew. Yet Yeshua is the genesis of Christianity. He taught His followers to have the kind of intimate relationship to God that requires you to address personal prayer to, “Our/My Father in heaven….”
This research explores the consequences of that kind of intimate relationship with God. What does seeing God as a Father do to the image and fear of God? Does requiring devotion and a cleaving to God change who God is in the eye of the cleaving, devoted follower? When non-Christian Jewish groups have taken similar positions on being a devoted child of God did they come to similar conclusions and were they received by the rest of Judaism the same way the early Jewish Christians were? Concerning God: Messianic Jews (MJ), Christians (especially Evangelical Christians), and the Hasidim all see themselves as being in a close familial relationship with their creator. A close relationship that brings about a high level of potential intimacy with God with no need of an intermediary or ritual.
Secondly: the reactions of co-religionists to the perceived intimacy of the Hasidim and early Jewish Christians had marked similarities.
Lastly are conclusions drawn from this research over the Hasidic and Christian similarities and ideas for further research. A summary of those conclusions is that when one sees him or herself as a child of God, the other ideas tend to follow. The ideas that spring from a foundation of a familial relationship to God make MJ, Evangelical Christians, and some of the Hasidim closer to each other than anytime since the first century.
