Being considered a professional is important. But most of us are 'old' professionals, not old in age, but old in thinking style and approach to living. Old professionals separate science and spirit and think in terms of either/or - 'you're either for me, or against me.' New professionals connect science and spirit and think in both/and terms.

The Story the Bible Couldn’t Tell
175 years after Moses led the Children of Israel out of Egypt, Devorah, a prophet, became the first and only female Judge to rule ancient Israel.
by pagan Canaanites practicing ritual sex and human sacrifice, Devorah must
find ways to maintain the Hebrews’ belief in the One God and overcome the
Canaanites’ overwhelming military supremacy.
walks a tightrope between her personal view of the One God as a present, loving
force and the prevailing view of God as a distant, punishing power. She calls
the fearsome God of the temple and formal worship, the God of the Scrolls; and
the benign, loving and accessible God, the God of the Covenant.
story is the first in Steve Liebowitz’ The
Covenant and The Scrolls series of novels based on these conflicting views
of God and its influence on the lives of Kings Saul, David, Solomon and other
Old Testament characters.
Steve Liebowitz’ interest in alternative ways of
knowing and understanding the Bible, began when he read Kazantzakis’ Last Temptation of Christ under fire
during the first TET Offensive in Viet Nam in 1968.He shares in these books that God is both
more than and less than we’ve always thought Her to be. These concepts
sustained him in the defense of his doctoral dissertation on alternative ways
of knowing in l990, and continue to support his Business Coaching practice
today.He’s lived these ideas, as well
as researched them.
