Item description for Telling Jews about Jesus by Paul Morris...
Overview So you want to share the Gospel with Jewish people. You have a Jewish friend, or your church is in a Jewish neighbourhood. But you feel inadequate. You know nothing of Jewish culture and sensitivities and you don't want to say or do the wrong thing. Telling Jews About Jesus will first of all help you to understand the Jewish people from what the Bible says, about them and from the historical experiences that have shaped and influenced modern Jewish culture and thought. Paul Morris then provides detailed advice about how to approach Jewish people and how to communicate the message of Jesus the Messiah to them.

What Christian witnesses should know about this book Jan 18, 2005
Got a Jewish friend? Want to maybe lose a Jewish friend? The author's experience in Israel, where the Jew is not in the minority, was certainly different than proselytizing almost anywhere else. Even in Israel a Jew would be perfectly correct to feel insulted, and even threatened, by proselytizing. Certainly, a Jew in the US has had plenty of exposure to Christianity already. An evangelical who was sincerely interested in why their Jewish friend isn't praying to Jesus would do well to learn about Judaism somewhere other than this book. A very readable place to start is available from this site: "Conservative Judaism" by Neil Gillman. Its main focus is on the history and beliefs of the Conservative branch of Judaism, but this can't be extracated from discussion of the Reform and Orthodox branches, even beyond just for a need to constrast. To learn why a Jew might be offended by proselytizing, you might want to start at http://www.outreachjudaism.org/response.html If a Jew wants to experience Christianity they will come to you. They know where to find you. In the meantime, please show respect for a beautiful religion. Thanks.
