Modern & classic books: Torah ethics, Mussar, history

(12-30-2009, 02:30 AM)Director Michael Wrote: When Noahides look for general-audience reading material from Rabbinical authors, it's highly recommended to look for authors who are committed to the traditional Torah faith. So for contemporary books on the subjects you mentioned, we recommend Orthodox Jewish authors, such as Rabbi Zelig Pliskin and Rabbi Dr. Abraham Twerski. Contemporary basic-level books from Orthodox Rabbis on Torah-based ethics, self-improvement, positive outlook, etc. are OK for Noahides.

Since there seem to be so many "Noahide" groups and authors out there I am wondering about a number of books/authors which I have either read or had intentions to read (these are Noahide specific). My intention is not to endorse or even ask for highly critical review of the works/authors I am just looking for some basic guidance in relation to some of these texts if any is available.

There are a number of books which take critical looks at teachings/doctrines of my former non-Torah religion. I have three of them but have only read one. Coming from that background myself and now approaching my former idolatry from the standpoint of an observant Noahide I find it important to my own intellectual needs to read refutations of the falsehoods I was raised with.

In this same genre is Gerald Sigal who is Jewish and has written a number of books (some of which appear self-published which raises some questions for me) on the Messianic claims made by other religions, one which I am currently reading is "Isaiah 53 who is the servant" and I find it well written and researched and so far a "good read".

Other books on my list are more about "spirituality" in general and are authored by Rabbi's Lazer Brody, and another is by Shalom Arush.

As for learning the 7 Mitzvot I stick with the Divine Code so I am not looking for other texts on that subject, but in general having been an educator myself at one time and having spent a great deal of my "free" time reading books on theology/spirituality which is my chosen topic of research I am looking for material's that are in that genre as well as more texts on Mashiach (the true Messiah from the dynasty of King David) which will help me formulate my words better as I "defend" my faith on the One G-d of the Bible and His commandments to Noah's descendents.
