From the Inside Flap:

"At last we have a book written by top scholars, thinkers, and leaders in the Messianic Jewish and larger Christian communities that addresses all the major questions of faith, praxis, and biblical interpretation among Jewish believers in Jesus. It is an extremely rich and important book, certain to stimulate fruitful discussion for years to come and covering a topic that the church can no longer ignore."
- Michael L. Brown, President, FIRE School of Ministry
"This book is a landmark contribution on the nature and significance of Messianic Judaism. It shows clearly that Messianic Judaism is not an ephemeral epiphenomenon that can any longer be ignored or marginalized; on the contrary, it poses an acute set of theological and ecclesiological questions that will take years to resolve. Written with pleasing economy and depth, this volume is indispensable reading for anyone who has forgotten the Jewish origins of Christianity or who has become complacent about the contested nature of their current ecclesial identity. I recommend it with enthusiasm."- William J. Abraham, Outler Professor of Theology and Wesley Studies and Altshuler Distinguished Teaching Professor, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
"This volume provides an unmatched resource for anyone wanting to understand Messianic Judaism today. In the first section, the accessible yet deeply informative essays written by scholars from within its own ranks cover the history and dynamics of Messianic Judaism. In the second, many topics relevant to the theological concerns of this movement are discussed by New Testament specialists."- Mark D. Nanos, Soebbing Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence, Rockhurst University

From the Back Cover:

"A splendid introduction both to the history, beliefs, and practices of various groups of Messianic Jews and to the biblical arguments for the ongoing presence of Jews, as Jews, among the followers of the one they call 'Messiah Yeshua.' Readers may well wrestle with the arguments, but such wrestling would be an appropriately Jewish response." - Amy Jill Levine, Vanderbilt University
"An excellent introduction to the contours, concerns, and challenges facing Messianic Judaism today."
- Scot McKnight, Northern Seminary
"Folks who think they know what Messianic Judaism is all about need to read this book."- Richard J. Mouw, Fuller Theological Seminary
"This is a must-read for anyone interested in Jewish-Christian relations."- Howard Silverman, Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations
"An extremely rich and important book, certain to stimulate fruitful discussion for years to come and covering a topic that the church can no longer ignore."- Michael L. Brown, FIRE School of Ministry, Concord, NC
"This book is a landmark contribution to the nature and significance of Messianic Judaism."- William J. Abraham, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
"An unmatched resource for anyone wanting to understand Messianic Judaism today."- Mark D. Nanos, Rockhurst University
