Called to Controversy, by Ruth Rosen, is the biography of Moishe Rosen, Ruth’s father and the founder of Jews for Jesus. Ruth has done a thorough job researching, and then sharing, about her fathers upbringing, his conversion to Christianity and later founding of Jews for Jesus. Ruth has described family members etc. in great detail, and one can get a real “feel” about them and the time they lived in. However, this book was hard going at times, perhaps too much information has been put in to it. I had read each evening for a good week, and when I looked at the progress bar on my Kindle, I discovered that I was only a third of the way through! It took me a good couple of months to read this book and, to be honest, I still haven’t completely finished it. This is a biography, so if people are looking for information about Messianic Jew conversion, then I suggest you look elsewhere. However, if you want to learn more about Jews for Jesus and its founder, then this is the right book for you.
