Called to Controversy The Unlikely Story of Moishe Rosen and the Founding of Jews for Jesus By Ruth Rosen

Called to Controversy-The Unlikely Story of Moishe Rosen and the Founding of Jews for Jesus is a biography of one of the pioneers of the Messianic Jewish movement. This fascinating story is about a young Jewish man and how his life was transformed when he met Jesus. Through many trials and victories, he came to found an evangelistic organization directed towards reaching Jewish people with the gospel. 

This story is well written, researched, and edited. I was really impressed by Ruth Rosen's ability to tell this story in such a way that it felt like you really got to know Moshie, and not just through a daughter's eyes. She sheds light on so many facets of his personality and the cultural climates in the times that he lived.  

Moshie's story captivated me from the very beginning. This is a book for all Christians to read. His groundbreaking work really brought about a dialogue and platform Jewish people to come to Christ. A Jewish Jesus presented to the world! Furthermore, such an amazing move of God is sweeping the nations as Christians are beginning to see and understand the bible from a Jewish perspective, and how this has blown open so much revelation in the present day body of Christ.

I love reading stories of lives well lived for God and how, often in these stories, the direction is pointed right back at Jesus. Get to know him, walk with him, be obedient to him, and you will have your own story, as God is the one that ultimately brings about great victories!

Moshie, I can't wait to meet you one day!
