Brother Craig's church was about to celebrate the Passover with a Messianic Jewish congregation when on the eve of Passover 2005, an arsonist set fire to his home on the church property. By God's grace, he and his family escaped--shaken but unharmed. His book, Truths for the Trail, grew out of his search to understand why it had happened. In the process, he had to reevaluate everything he had been taught in Scripture about the Jews, the festivals of the Lord, and the Torah, which Christians know as the Law.Brother Craig didn't realize it at first, but he was about to begin a spiritual journey just to find some answers to his questions. He discovered that he had to go back to the beginning of man to see what the Lord wanted him to see--what God taught ancient, nomadic Hebrews to see--that life is a road to travel, a path to walk, or a trail to follow. That the commandments God gave the ancient Hebrews were each laid out in a sequence designed to help simple shepherds and their families walk in righteousness.If the ancient commandments could help ancient peoples walk in the way of the Lord, could they not also help modern Christians wend their way through the dangers and difficulties of life? As he reflected on the commandments, Brother Craig began to see a pattern emerge that undoubtedly led the ancient Hebrews to understand life from the Lord's divine viewpoint.Truths for Life's Trail: Reflections on the Torah, Volume 1 covers all the commandments given by God to man over the course of over two thousand years, as recorded by Moses. From Genesis 1 through Exodus 20, from creation to Mount Sinai, these commandments laid the foundation for all the commandments yet to come in Scripture. And mysteriously, the Torah would point to the future Savior of mankind.
