Details

“I was born a Jew, and I will die a Jew.” “I won’t betray my ancestors!” “If Jesus is the Jewish Messiah, why isn’t there peace on earth?” When it comes to Jewish Christian apologetics, the best answers are those that respond to actual objections. Incisive and direct, this volume provides an honest, fair, and thorough discussion of 35 common objections on general and historical themes. Answering general objections is usually a matter of correcting misconceptions about Jesus and the New Testament. Historical objections tend to be more substantial, dealing specifically with the purpose of a Messiah, or anti-Semitism, or the Holocaust. Believers and seekers alike will appreciate the spiritually focused answers, which are thoroughly documented and footnoted.
