Item description for Importance Of Being Ernest, The by Mike Moore & Moore Mike...
Overview Ernest Lloyd's life spans almost the entire twentieth century. At the age of six he was placed in the care of the Naomi Children's Home run by the Barbican Mission to the Jews and in his teens he came to faith in Jesus as his Messiah. At the age of twenty he became a missionary with the British Jews Society and for seventy years he has travelled the globe as a missionary to his own people and as an ambassador of Jewish mission. He has also played a major role in the birth and growth of the modern Messianic Jewish movement. The book chronicles the important role Ernest played in Jewish mission during the twentieth century and how, through his ministry, many Jews and Gentiles, including entire families, have come to know the Messiah. The book also provides insights into Jewish life, culture and religion.
Publishers Description John Charles Ryle 1816 1900 was the first Bishop of Liverpool England. After a dazzling sporting career at school and university poised on the verge of national recognition he gave it all up to become a minister in the Church of England.However his leadership abilities on the field of play stood out and prepared him for the difficult task of being an evangelical leader of a mixed diocese in the most sectarian of English cities. Throughout his period in office Ryle was respected by his colleagues to the extent that even one of his most strident opponents broke down and wept at the news of his death. He was able to master the difficult task of being firm in his beliefs and loving in his application of them. His gracious spirit is an example to us today. This is probably why many of Ryle's writings have been continuously in print for over 100 years. Here Ryle explains that divisive often derided and misapplied by advertising term 'born again'. He explains what being 'born again' means why it is necessary and how you can tell whether you are. Much of the value of this publication though lies in what Ryle writes next. In his gracious yet firm way Ryle devotes the majority of the book to explaining how the objections people have had to the doctrine should be handled and overcome with gentle persuasion.It is a supreme example of the art of persuasion.

Great stuff! Jul 14, 2003
Ernest Lloyd is a wonderful gentleman; gracious, gentle, kind and with a real compassion for lost souls. This is his story, but it is more than his story. It is a history of modern mission to the Jewish people in a life that spans the 20th century. For 70 years Mr Lloyd has travelled the world, preaching in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Singapore, and all points in between.
Full of stories of personal encounters this book is a joy to read, and has a lot to teach us about how we do our evangelism. But more than being a history of mission to the Jewish people it is a record of the grace of God in extending his Kingdom, first to the Jew and then to the Gentile.
