The Hem of His Garment
by John D. Garr, Ph.D.

Click to buy:

Description: Dr. Garr provides a comprehensive study of the biblical tallith tradition---the four-cornered garment with tzitziyot (fringes) on each point as a means of calling both wearers and observers to remember the commandments. You'll be amazed at the continuing impact Hebraic dress has upon Jewish people and its importance for our understanding of Jesus. 103 pages, softcover from Golden Key.

Our Review: This book used to be packaged with a tape (ask when purchasing): The Mystery of Jesus' Prayer Shawl by Dwight A. Prayor (Center for Judaic-Christian Studies). The tape is a WONDERFUL addition to this fascinating subject. It is also great for those wanting to hear Hebrew spoken along with a translation of each phrase.
