In the words of Dennis:

The study of Torah is considered the greatest, in some ways, of all of the Laws because it leads you to the rest, says the Talmud. However, having said that, I am not an apologist for the Torah. If there is a moral difficultly, I acknowledge it. I don't read it through the eyes of being a religious Jew alone and that's the reason that people from many backgrounds enjoy this work and why people from many backgrounds do not like my work. I do not have a pre-existing agenda. I want to know, what does it really say, and is it relevant.
