From the author that brought readers Jews for Salaam and Judaiology comes the third in his four-book series Jews for Salaam. In Yahvehism, author Imam Warith-Deen Umar delves into the religion of the prophet Moses and his people, the ancient Hebrews.
Yahvehism is about God (Yahveh) and the Hebrews who followed Prophet Moses as a religion. It focuses on the use and misuses of the idea of God. Gathering supporting evidences, the author presents a rational argument to defend the thesis that God, the title of the Creator, has often been hidden from His names, resulting in confusion of worship for the masses of people in general and Jewish people in particular. The confusion has been devastating for the people of Judaism and consequently many others. This book is the continuation, confirmation, and integration of facts he and others have discovered and brought forth over the years through research, study, and prayer.
God is one. This is an original concept that has developed in most, if not all, of the faiths of mankind. All man’s major religions ultimately believe in monotheism. Those that believe in the existence of God ultimately believe that God is One Creator-God who is all-powerful and is supreme. The author believes that one has to know the history and significance of the Jews to capture the wholeness of Islam, biblical history, life, and God. He also hopes to bring Judaism back to Yahvehism.
Yahvehism and other books in the Jews for Salaam series are not intended for best-seller status or financial gain. Rather, they are the author’s contribution for more understanding among people and to the solution for peace in this world.
