Read an Excerpt

(Excerpted from the Preface)

The dialogue movement of the twentieth century is a modern phenomenon. Diverse religious groups can sit down together and discuss dispassionately their differences. The obvious goal is that if these groups understand one another better, find the areas both sides can agree upon and decide that the issues which tend to divide should not be the focus for any animosity, then we will have a better world in which to live.

Of particular interest to evangelicals is the dialogue that has taken place between Jewish rabbis and scholars and leaders of various denominations in Christendom. In one sense, the dialogue has been good. Christians certainly need to understand the roots of their faith--the Jewish community of 2,000 years ago. The one major sticking point, however, is the function of evangelism in Christianity. Evangelicals must insist that this is one endeavor which cannot be abandoned. Especially so when one considers that Yeshua (Jesus) himself gave this directive in the Great Commission whereby disciples must be made of all nations, including Jewish people (Matthew 28:18-20).

Understandably, rabbis and scholars representing the Jewish community resist evangelism. To make their point crystal clear, Jewish leaders liken evangelism to what Hitler accomplished with one third of Jewry. Evangelism, they say, decimates the Jewish community. But the basis for evangelism is not to be found in sociological concerns; rather, it is to be found in what the Word itself declares and in what Yeshua himself proclaimed.
