Title: Messianic Judaism (A Modern Movement with An Ancient Past)Author: David H. SternPages: 321Year: 2007Publisher: Messianic Jewish PublisherMy rating 4 out of 5 stars.A friend and I were getting together weekly to discuss various chapters in the book. One thing we quickly observed was that the book was ten years old and therefore a lot had changed in the Messianic community since the book was published. So, we looked at the book with more of a historical perspective and for what we could lea [...]

I very much enjoyed this book. Stern writes with great conviction and clarity and succeeds in giving a great overview of the state of Messianic Judaism at the time of publishing (2007).There is much to commend this book and its pages contain many gold nuggets of truth. I heartily affirm so much of Stern's assessment.Important for readers to understand is the narrow-sense of Stern's use of the term "Messianic Judaism." for Stern, this is a narrower idea than simply a Jewish person who believes in [...]

Stern has presented us with a vigorous and readable defense of Messianic Jewish thought. His differentiation between Israeli and American branches are appreciated. His sensitivity to the historical progression of Hebrew Christianity (with was instrumental to the foundation the Diocese of Jerusalem, of which I am a member) is also laudable.The book has a number of typos and misspellings, which is odd since it is itself an edited and expanded version of an earlier book.The main drawback of this bo [...]

Very interesting book, with a somewhat weak theology.It is well laid-out, easy on the eyes, and written in a very fluid language, can be read fast.It was badly revised: quite some typos, specially in the latter half or so, such as hyphens separating words in the middle of lines, or missing letters. Also the footnotes are quite confusing, leading one to chains of references that at least once I gave up on following.Theologically it assumes a Neoarminian, Neoevangelical approach without quite maki [...]

He had some great quotes on the importance of history. The book was written quite some time ago, so it's a bit outdated at this point for the Messianic movement. Large sections of his book deal with Biblical passages, and it's probably easier to just get that out of the Jewish New Testament Commentary by the same author.
