Author and theologian R. L. Solberg examines heresies and worldviews that oppose Christ, especially Hebrew Roots and Torah-observant Christian theologies. Utilizing generous amounts of Scripture and historical research, Solberg presents compelling insights and builds robust arguments with clarity and grace.
R. L. Solberg is a leading Christian apologist against Torahism (aka Hebrew Roots), the heresy that teaches followers of Jesus are required to keep the Old Testament Law of Moses. He has been pursuing theology, apologetics, and philosophy formally and informally for more than two decades. He studied at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and has a Master's Degree in Theological Studies from Williamson College. He also studied Biblical Hebrew at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
