2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Joseph T Reinckens II on Aug. 27 2003
Format: Paperback
This is a planned four-volume set.
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'.

Format: Paperback
A number of Dr. Brown's arguments, especially towards the beginning of the book, deal with primarily 'knee-jerk' emotional responses of Jews to Christian evangelism. These responses are largely illogical and Dr. Brown does an excellent job in responding to these issues. However, as he proceeds into more reasonably placed objections, there are numerous places where his arguments, while valuable to a faltering believer, are far less convincing to the seeker. As an example, in one instance Dr. Brown addresses the issue of reconciliation with G-d. He notes with compassion that traditional Jews have no assurance that they have been forgiven by G-d, whereas in Christianity, believers have that promise. This is an argument appealing to the emotions of the reader, and not his logic, the reason being that G-d in the Old Testament does not promise to tell the people if they have won His forgiveness. So while the Christian approach is appealing emotionally, logically it is using the argument to prove itself. I would recommend reading with careful scrutiny, using Dr. Brown's excellent footnotes and the original sources if possible.

I really don't remember if I have ever seen a book solely dedicated to evangelizing the Jews, but Michael Brown has provided this resource to us. This is the first of his three volumes, with the final volume being released in 2003. (Boy, I sure wish that we could have had the opportunity to buy one large combined volume; it's no fun trying to remember which of the three books where you saw something and then try to reference the point.) I plan on reading the other two volumes as well. Although there were some places where the writing is a little dry and hard to stay focused, overall I appreciated the questions that were raised and how Brown was able to answer them. I like the fact that Brown is a Jewish Christian, so while some of his brethren may not consider him to be a true "Jew," I think he probably has more authority than a typical "goyyim" like me! His sympathy of the Jewish mindset was very much appreciated. Overall, this book is an excellent resource and has found a place on my bookshelf. I will read the other two volumes and utilize Brown's arguments in the years to come.

As soon as I began reading the preface of this book, I knew I had found what I had been looking for the last 14 years--something to help me witness. Not just to my Jewish friends, but it has helped me with my own questions and those of other believers. This book has helped me finally become a Christian ready for meat instead of milk. Michael (I use his first name because I feel I know him now) writes as if he is talking to you, the reader. You can almost hear his voice. It's a personal journey. Anyone--Jewish or Gentile--with any questions about the deity of Christ, will find the answers here and in the next two books. My Sunday school class and I have been working through this first one for over a year now. (We took over a month just to get through the preface and introduction as each new line opened up new thoughts and questions.) Thank you, God, for helping this man be so strong.

This book was the answer to a prayer. I prayed to God to give me a Jewish perspective before attempting to share the gospel with my Jewish friend, I went to the bookstore to find a book (thinking one did not exist), and this was the FIRST book I saw on the shelf. God does hear our prayers! Dr. Brown is a modern-day Apostle Paul, held up by God to be a light not only to the Jews but to Christians as well. I have read Christian apologetics for over 20 years, but always from a "gentile" or Christian perspective. Dr. Brown so richly gives us a Jewish perspective that is much needed by Christians today desiring to reach our Jewish friends. I believe it would be impossible for a Christian to read this book and NOT love Jews more that ever!
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!!
