Brown delivers a much-needed resource to Christians. He offers well-researched, thoughtful, biblical responses to difficult questions that arise when Christians share Yeshua (Jesus) with Jews.... Brown doesn't shy away from challenging subjects such as anti-missionary efforts and the Holocaust. As a result, the material is engaging and convicting. This soul-winning tool is written with a perfect blend of passion, wisdom, and revelation. It's ideal for readers wanting to reach Jewish family members, friends, or coworkers. It's also a must-have for anyone interested in understanding Christianity's Jewish roots. Highly recommend it. -- CBA Marketplace, January 2000
Michael Brown's work in the area of Jewish apologetics is the most thorough and penetrating I have seen. There is no doubt in my mind that this work will make a major contribution to the ongoing discussion and will, in fact, set the standard in the field -- Richard Averbeck, associate professor, Old Testament and Semitic Languages, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
Michael Browns thinking is incisive and to the point. His ability to explain so that anyone can understand is amazing. He will surely be acclaimed as the new expert in Jewish Christian apologetics. I would be happy to recommend his much needed book to anyone -- Moishe Rosen, founder, Jews for Jesus

Dr. Brown is the leading expert on responding to objections to Jesus and Christian theology raised by knowledgeable Orthodox Jews. He has a doctorate in Semitic languages, the books are well-researched and well-written and he covers the material in detail, going into Talmudic interpretations, Rashi, Maimonedes, etc. Although such Jewish theologians are unfamiliar to most Christians, their names are as familiar to knowledgeable Jews as Moody and Scofield are to Christians.
Although most purchasers are gentile evangelists, material is arranged essentially as dialogues between an Orthodox Jew and a responding Messianic.
Unfortunately, the books are rather pointless. Why? See Evangelism Explosion. If a person is not open to the gospel, no amount of arguments will matter. You can see similar debates in Internet newsgroups between Protestants and Catholics, Protestants and Mormons, Messianics and non-messianic Jews, etc.
I recently took Brown's course on Messianic Apologetics. He started by having two Messianic Jews try evangelizing him and he responded as an Orthodox would, with arguments from his books. One of the evangelists is an Israeli graduate of the Jewish Studies program at Christ for the Nations experienced at Jewish evangelism.
Responding like a non-messianic Orthodox, Brown "wiped the floor" with both of them, with things like "Are you Jewish?" "Is your mother Jewish?" "Is HER mother Jewish?" "Do you keep kosher?" (Contrary to the Bible, the Israeli Supreme Court says a person only is Jewish if their mother is Jewish. Hence, if the mother's mother wasn't Jewish, the mother isn't Jewish, so he's not Jewish, etc.)
It then moved on to, "Numbers 23 says, 'God is not a man'.Read more ›
The reviewer who said that "nobody with a genuine belief likes to have someone else's belief shoved down his throat." I wonder why he read the book? Also, I find it interesting that Christians do not feel threatened at all by other religions but other religions feel threatened by Christianity. Why is that? Is it the power of Truth?
Also, I have read many antagonistic reviews of Dr. Brown's various books and they all have the same characteristics: 1) no cohesive, logical argument 2) emotionally-driven (anger) and 3) incoherency!
Thank you, Dr. Brown! Wish I could give this book 10 stars!!

Michael L. Brown is Pablo Christiani and Rabbi Nachmanides took care of him several centuries ago.
Let us be Jews as you wish to be a Xtian.

"Errors of fact." What would those be? "Fundamentalism, anti-semitism, bigotry. . ." Loaded terms that don't stand up to any degree of rational scrutiny. Read morePublished on Nov. 21 2001 by Bintalla

Dr. Brown's speaking style is excellent. However his attempt to transfer it to a written text is quite boring at times. Read morePublished on April 18 2001
This book is only for die-hard fundamentalists who think these arguments might actually win a theological debate. Read morePublished on March 21 2001
Brown's book is really a much-needed work in apologetics. Before, it was difficult to fine a section that dealt with why some Jewish people refuse to accept Jesus as our Messiah. Read morePublished on Jan. 5 2001 by Jack Turner
