Who are the Messianic Jews? What do they believe and practice? What is the Jewish community’s reaction to the development of Messianic Judaism? In this pioneering study, Dan Cohn-Sherbok traces the development of the Messianic movement from ancient times to its transformation after World War II. Focusing on the nature of the movement today, the volume continues with a detailed examination of Messianic practices, and the place of Messianic Judaism within the contemporary Jewish community.

He is Professor of Judaism at the University of Wales, Lampeter, and is the author or editor of over 70 books including The Jewish Heritage, The Blackwell Dictionary of Judaica, Modern Judaism, Judaism and Other Faiths, and World Religions and Human Liberation.

In 1941, The United States is drawn into World War II. During that same year, Dr. Henry Einspruch publishes his classic book, The Yiddish New Testament, a breakthrough in evangelistic literature for Jewish people. Over the following decades, the publications of Lederer/Messianic Jewish Communications have been widely used to impact thousands of Jewish people with the Good News of Messiah. These books and tracts have been distributed in the Orthodox Jewish community, have been given out to Jews in the former Soviet Union, and have been used by Messianic congregations and Jewish outreaches all over the world. Messianic Jewish Publishers mission is two-pronged: Reaching out to Jewish people with the message of Messiah and teaching the non-Jewish spiritual family about their Jewish roots.

    I read the sample pages, and when I read the bottom half of page 6, I knew I wanted this book!!! I am doing a study on how can we be "Scripture alone", when we don't keep ANY of the worship days commanded in the scripture! This teaches the same thing that" Constantine's creed" comments on! You have to renounce EVERYTHING Jewish to become a Christian. That is sooo wrong!!! How did we get to where we are? Constantine did many many bad things, this is the worse!!!
