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.
Finally, someone in the Jewish world has the courage to say what needs to be said. Dan Cohn-Sherbok, with his usual lucidity and analytic skills, has demonstrated that Messianic Jews have the right to be included in the Jewish people. The path to his conclusion is filled with fascinating historical and confessional revelations.

It is both an unusual and a welcome development to find a constructive study of Messianic Jews from a leading Jewish academic rabbi.
He has written a most interesting assessment of Jewish believers in Jesus who are grappling with the challenges of remaining loyal to the claims of Yeshua (Jesus) while being committed to their Jewish ethnic and cultural traditions.
