Steve Liebowitz’  interest in non-traditional ways of understanding the Bible, began under fire during the first TET Offensive in Vietnam in 1968.  In “Devorah, The Covenant and The Scrolls, Book One”  he shares the idea that God is much more than we think He is. This awareness sustained Steve in the defense of his doctoral dissertation in l990, and continues to support his Business Coaching and Management Consulting practice today.  In addition to his PH.D, Dr. Liebowitz holds two Masters Degrees. He is currently Commander of JWV (Jewish War Veterans) Post 243 in Coral Gables. Not only has Dr Steve researched these ideas, he’s lived them.
