Thousands of years ago, Moses rescued the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt and lead them to their 'promised land', but his teaching continues to have a lasting influence on the World today. This book tells you all about Moses and explains his teaching. It examines the sacred texts of Judaism and explores the major sacred places and festivals associated with Moses. This differentiated (simplified) text edition of "Great Religious Leaders: Moses and Judaism" considers how the life and teaching of Moses affects people today, thus making it a great introduction to this important world religion.
Ruth Nason has been involved in Religious Education publishing since the early 1980s when the major World Religions became increasingly part of the school curriculum. She has edited and written many books on world religions, including for Batsford Educational (in the 1980s), Oxford University Press Educational Division, Wayland and Evans Brothers. She therefore has close contacts with RE advisers and with educational representatives of the world faiths in Britain. Her work in this area of publishing has led to a lively interest in 'interfaith relations'.
