I loved hearing about the ministry style of “Jews for Jesus” described in this book because it seems like it is purely outreach. Their main focus was getting the word out about Jesus. In the early days most of the outreach was accomplished through street ministry and in future days it progressed more towards reaching people through internet ministry, although the street ministry didn’t go away. When I first heard about Jews for Jesus I thought it was another denomination but after reading this book I came to understand that the people associated with the ministry attended their own congregations.
My favorite quote from the book:
“Moishe understood that many chose not to describe themselves as Christian because being Jewish and Christian are commonly considered mutually exclusive. But he “refused to refuse” to allow his Jewish identity to separate him from Gentiles who were following the Jewish Messiah and who, as a result, loved the Jewish people…Within the world of Jewish believers in Jesus, Moishe did not see himself as either the cause or the potential solution to these divisions…” Page 214
I liked reading this memoir about Moishe Rosen, about how the Jews for Jesus ministry came about and I hope that other ministries and congregations will adopt their outreach style to reach lost people for Jesus.
