This book is the go-to source for introductory information on Messianic Judaism. Editors David Rudolph and Joel Willitts have assembled a thorough examination of the ecclesial context and biblical foundations of the diverse Messianic Jewish movement. Unique among similar works in its Jew-Gentile partnership, this book brings together a team of respected Messianic Jewish and Gentile Christian scholars, including Mark Kinzer, Richard Bauckham, Markus Bockmuehl, Craig Keener, Darrell Bock, Scott Hafemann, Daniel Harrington, R. Kendall Soulen, Douglas Harink and others. Opening essays, written by Messianic Jewish scholars and synagogue leaders, provide a window into the on-the-ground reality of the Messianic Jewish community and reveal the challenges, questions and issues with which Messianic Jews grapple. The following predominantly Gentile Christian discussion explores a number of biblical and theological issues that inform our understanding of the Messianic Jewish ecclesial context. Here is a balanced and accessible introduction to the diverse Messianic Jewish movement that both Gentile Christian and Messianic Jewish readers will find informative and fascinating.

Ever Before Me: Your Love is a meditation on the intersection of library science and the arts, particularly dance. This multi genre book encompasses poetry, theater, and religious studies. The author explores themes of love and inspiration in a pensive, philosophical, and comedic way. This book contains poems, monologues, articles and even tweets some never before published. The advent of the Internet has changed how humans access and organize information, requiring libraries to accept global technological shifts and to incorporate the use of social media to remain relevant and viable. Writing this book involved a soulful embrace of library science and the creative arts; it is very interdisciplinary in nature.

Richard Harvey, himself a Messianic Jew, maps the diverse theological terrain of this young movement. He makes an original and innovative contribution by clarifying, affirming and constructively critiquing the present state of its theology. The book examines five topics of theological concern: 1. God's nature, activity and attributes (can the one God of Israel and the Christian Trinity be the same?) 2. The Messiah (Messianic Jewish Christologies) 3. Torah in theory (the meaning and interpretation of the Torah in the light of Jesus) 4. Torah in practice (Messianic practice of Sabbath, food laws and Passover) 5. Eschatology (the diverse models employed within the movement to describe the future of Israel). Within each topic Harvey explores the range of Messianic Jewish views and their roots in both Jewish and Christian theological traditions. The author proposes a typology of eight theological tendencies within Messianic Judaism and identifies issues where further theological development is required.

In Christian Discipleship, Dr. Mike leads the reader into a true relationship with the Lord, in terms of being a disciple of Christ. The great German theologian, Dietrich Bonhoeffer said it best, when he said, "Cheap grace is the mortal enemy of our church. Our struggle today is for costly grace.” This study guide outlines and explains what it means to follow Christ in a post-modern world beset by humanism (What's best for me? How can I be satisfied?). In being a disciple of Christ, every call of Jesus is a call to death – denying oneself.
