This book is the perfect starting point for those Christians, gentile and Jewish, who wish to share their beliefs intelligently with Jewish friends or family. Jewish Christian Michael L Brown provides strategies for responding effectively to traditional Jewish objections to the New Testament. 384 pages, from Baker.
A Jewish person has different objections to Jesus than an atheist, yet most apologetics books are geared toward conversing with non-religious people about the gospel. Michael L. Brown, a Jewish believer in Jesus, has been writing popular books on talking with Jews about the Messiah for years. Now he takes those discussions even further with this newest volume of Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus. It focuses on the New Testament and traditional Jewish objections to Jesus, giving believers the important background information they need when discussing matters of faith with people who share many of their beliefs. This book is the perfect starting point for gentile and Jewish Christians who wish to speak intelligently with their Jewish friends or family.
"Messianic Judaism is a kind of stepchild in the Christian movement. Most people know very little about it or its views. Many criticisms of this movement come from 'anti-missionaries'. Anti-missionaries are Jewish writers who wish to challenge the claim that Christianity is any kind of natural extension or fulfillment of Judaism. This debate about Christianity with Judaism goes back centuries and has traditions stretching back to early Christians and rabbis."There is now an excellent and unique multi-volume resource that treats such objections thoroughly, one at a time. Michael Brown's Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus is this and more. The volumes also discuss issues tied to law and grace as well as Jewish practice within the movement. The work is up to date and thoroughly researched. The history of the debate is often noted as the answers are given. All the options and choices are there, so you can make the final call. This is a wonderful resource for study of the relationship between Christianity and Judaism."--Darrell Bock, research professor of New Testament studies and professor of spiritual development and culture, Dallas Theological Seminary"Dr. Brown has provided a much needed resource for the followers of Jesus with this fourth volume of Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus. He has produced a rare combination of scholarship and accessibility that will both encourage the faithful and provide convincing proofs for the seekers. There is no other contemporary resource like it, and it will no doubt be useful in countering not just Jewish objections but the objections of so many other skeptics and naysayers of the New Testament."--David Brickner, executive director, Jews for Jesus"Brown's answers to objections are carefully thought out, honest, and well researched. His work provides a useful model on how to do apologetics for all who are interested in articulating and defending the Christian faith."--Craig Keener, professor of New Testament studies, Palmer Theological Seminary of Eastern University
