Reviews - What do customers think about There Must Be Something More!?
Out of the new age.... Aug 24, 2005
I've read some of the previous reviews that say that Sid Roth is a "traitor Jew", but I do not agree with that assessment. Sid Roth is a man who was deeply involved in the New Age movement and occult practices. This book details his search for "something more." He found that in Jesus, the Messiah.
If you enjoy biographies of saints or other spiritual people you will enjoy this book. If you are involved in the occult or new age, and don't understand what we Christians have "found", you just might come to understand, reading this book.
Tedious Apr 18, 2000
The fact that Sid Roth has become a celebrity in the fundamentalist Christian circuit only attests to the basic talentlessness of fundamentalist Christians.
This book is the standard whiny "I was bad, bad BAD and then I found Jesus" storyline. Sid Roth paints everything before his conversion in dark evil colors to contrast with the happy smily face stuff afterwards. Some creepy scenes like Sid swooping down on his brother-in-law at his neice's funeral in order to get the guy to also accept Jesus. While there's the happy "we're all going to Heaven now" speech by the nephew, the neice didn't accept Jesus so she's probably in Hell according to his logic. THere's also the family having a little party in the hospice because they've finally convinced their non-religious father to at least say that Jesus is the Messiah. The last chapter is a lot of scholarly babble that is convincing to people not accustomed to scholarly papers, but lacks credibility in that it doesn't prove its prime theses (ie. Jesus is a valid extension of Judaism) and instead attacks another thesis (ie. Talmudic Judaism is the only true form of Judaism).
Not much else to recommend in this book. If you like these kind of born again confessionals check out Mike Warnke's The Satan Seller (yes, I know it's a fabrication but it's also a great read). If you want convincing that Jews are eventually come around and become Christians, forget it. If you want to know about so-called "messianic judaism" go to a Baptist Church since they fund it and it's pretty much their religion with yarmulkes, tzitzits and a few Hebrew phrases thrown in for good measure.
A man not afraid to tell the truth Apr 26, 1999
Poor Mr. Roth has really done good job of "exciting" people. He really has a heart for God (the true G-O-D, not the idol type). As for these people afraid of this message in his book... losen-up! God loves EVERYONE. And Jesus Died for you just like for everyone else! Christianity is not a cult, It's a loving companionship with The True God. I'll be praying for you.
More St. Augustine like idiocy from a traitor Jew Aug 10, 1997
May St. Augustine's bones rot in hell for giving us the dubious confessional genre of literature. Now every Christian can babble on and on about how bad they were until they gave their lives (not to mention all of their brain cells to Jesus). Sid does have some interesting stories at the beginning, and anyone who knows anything about Judaism will be amused by his utter ignorance of the religion he is pretending to "improve". The "occult" sections are the most hilarious since anyone who studies anything mystical will tell you that casting spells is something that three year olds do and not mature adults, but by Sid's own admission he was never a mature adult.
When Sid finally decides to get his life in order and seek something beyond his own ego he makes a pit stop at scary fundamentalism and never lets up. No matter how old this book is, no matter how hackneyed and cliched are the man's beliefs, no matter how little thinking is required for his bumper sticker ideaology, he is the same moron today as he was then. The only problem is is that he has written this book in an effort to get other Jews into these kinds of mind control cults, and to keep the Jews in the mind control cult of "messianic Judaism" pompous in their ignorance of Judaism and the Bible.
The last few chapters are given to a "scholar" whose PhD hasn't helped him in critical thinking. In responding to the criticisms of real Jews he takes the offensive saying that the Oral Torah or Talmud were also creations and departures form the original Sinai experience, all the while neglecting to defend Christianity as any less of a departure.
This would be a pathetic piece of crap if it didn't have a sinister purpose and that is to enable the Christians to get ahold of the Jews unexcited by their heritage, much like the Amalekites attacked the Jews at the back of the line during the Exodus, and to make them into Christians, thereby eliminating Judaism and completing Hitler's job.
