Biblical Christianity was originally a sect of Judaism that believed in Jesus and revered the Torah as the core of the scriptures. Restoration is a riveting argument for a return to that original biblical expression of faith in Jesus. Discover for yourself the profound beauty of Torah life, the celebration of the biblical Sabbath, and the application of God's holy feast days. Your eyes will be opened to another dimension of the faith that is beginning to reemerge among Christians worldwide. Lancaster answers common theological objections to the Torah, while demonstrating that Christians are already keeping more of God's Law than they realize. This thought provoking, theological boat-rocker is a fun-to-listen-to, inspiring journey into the world of the Bible.

Excellent! powerful, must-read for every believer
I really enjoyed the audio version of this book and definitely enjoyed this new tenth anniversary edition more than previous editions because the material is significantly expanded.
The things I have learned from this book, and other teaching materials by D. Thomas Lancaster, have enriched and strengthened my faith tremendously. My love for Messiah has grown so much deeper, and my life has been transformed for the better. Lancaster has a great way of taking complex concepts and breaking them down into ways that are easy to understand, while at the same time, surprising you with new understandings and insights you feel amazed you never saw before, even if you've read your Bible for years!
I really value the intellectual honesty Lancaster maintains throughout his teaching material. His scriptural and historical knowledge is enlightening. He truly is an amazing teacher!
I personally view this book with similar importance as C.S Lewis classic religious work "Mere Christianity". In that book, C.S. Lewis looked past the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations and presented fresh perspectives on the Christian faith with simple, powerfully rational logic. Similarly, in "Restoration", Lancaster looks past the traditional boundaries that divide Christianity and Torah observant Judaism (the faith Jesus lived out) and presents fresh perspectives on the Christian faith with simple, powerfully rational logic. The hidden beauty is that both authors use rational logic to effectively move hearts and minds, and bring people into closer relationship with God.
Regardless if you agree or disagree with Lancaster's theological convictions, he will challenge you and give you fresh perspectives on the Christian faith and the Torah. Highly recommend.

Not being a rambling self serving opinion piece. I hate it when I read things that are based on a premise that every one else had it wrong throughout history except "the author" whose opinion has to be the only thing standing at the end of the day. The book took a long time to get going because the author was trying unsuccessfully to create his "bona fides" by giving his own personal family history.
NO NO NO
He was a pretty good presenter - it was the material that was bad.
I was trying to tolerate this light weight tome till he turned anti Catholic and anti-Christian - I fundamentally agree with the necessity to tie the Torah with Christian practice - but how ??? if the author was genuine, he could have tied this in with specifics without trying to build the premise on his ego and his self serving negativity,
