Called To Controversy

I had, of course, heard of Moishe Rosen and Jews for Jesus throughout my childhood, though never in depth or detail. I knew of him by reputation, but not much more. Naturally, I was intrigued when I saw this book.
I quite enjoyed the intimate look into not only Moishe Rosen’s ministry, but the life, background and experiences that formed him. It is a fascinating look into the Jewish heart and mind, and is filled with beautiful life lessons throughout.
Though the author obviously has a deep respect and love for this great man and leader, she manages to clearly portray his very human side as well – faults and foibles, warts and all. The book lifts up Rosen’s strengths, lessons and wonderful examples, while honestly showing his mistakes and shortcomings.
I love a good biography, and Ruth Rosen did a beautiful job with this one. I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a challenging, uplifting read.
