Moishe Rosen lived in that home.
Told by his daughter, Called to Controversy is the story of a man who grew up in a Jewish household. He celebrated the festivals, went to the synagogue, and did all the "right" Jewish things. But he never saw God as more that some Being, if He even existed at all. Then Jesus happened to him,
Through prayer and good neighbors, Moishe's wife Ceil, and later he, both became believers in Jesus. Soon after, God called Moishe to preach His Word.
Called to Controversy chronicles Moishe's journey through seminary, his many moves across country, his various positions with missions and his burning passion to see Jews come to Jesus. That passion eventually led to a huge international mission that has shown the way to the true Messiah for countless Jewish people.
Ruth delves deep into the man that founded Jews for Jesus. Her perspective offers a refreshing look at a man who was a wonderful leader with passion and a sense of humor, but who was not perfect. She balances stories of Moishe's temper and need for control with his compassion and willingness to teach anyone who would listen.
This book is as encouraging as it is informative. I think it's a great book for those who love biographies, particularly those of missionaries.
Moishe once mused, as he passed a street preacher, that he wished he believed in something strongly enough to stand on the corner and shout it. Whether he meant that as a prayer or not, God heard it.Pin It Now!
