Called to Controversy by Ruth Rosen

Before reading this book, I knew very little about the Jews for Jesus movement, and even less about its founder Moishe Rosen. This book showed me the life of a man growing up in a Jewish home who eventually came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, followed the call to serve Him, and passionately served and founded an amazing ministry.

This book is more so about the man, Moishe Rosen, than it is about Jews for Jesus. That’s not to say that I did not gain more knowledge of Jews for Jesus from it. I absolutely know more now than I did. This book shows a man truly “running the race”. He was a family man, an evangelist, a leader for the faith. I also learned more about the life of a nonreligious Jewish family. I personally love biographies, especially about people who are living their life for Christ. The only reason I gave it four stars was because I expected to read a bit more about the Jews for Jesus ministry. All in all though, this book was uplifting and interesting.
