Format: Paperback
Dr. Jacob Gartenhaus (1896-1984) was "the founder and president of International Board of Jewish Missions, Inc.... after coming to Christ as a young man in New York City, Dr. Gartenhaus gave himself to a life of service in Jewish evangelism and missions which lasted over sixty years." He is also the author of Traitor?: A Jew, a book, a miracle : an autobiography.

This 1998 book briefly tells the stories of 35 "Hebrew Christians" (i.e., Jewish persons who converted to Christianity), including the author. Few of them are well-known (except for the composer Felix Mendelssohn and the British statesman Benjamin Disraeli).

The author writes in the Introduction, "the results of Christian witness and missionary testimony to the Jews are manifest, momentous, and meritorious. The means expended and the manpower employed are completely and convincingly justified. The brief biographical sketches in this book ... afford clear proof of this to both Jews and Gentiles... It should be mentioned, however, that the following biographies omit such nominal Hebrew Christians as Heinrich Heine, Fritz Haber, Emim Pasha, and Gustave Mahler, who contributed little to the church and its mission. Also omitted are those Jews who upon conversion joined the Roman Catholic or Greek Catholic churches." (Pg. 26)

Here are some additional quotations from the book:

"I want to emphasize to Jews who are biased against the so-called 'Meshumadim' (a derogatory term applied to Jews who accept Christ as Messiah and Savior) that, with few exceptions, Jews who acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord become better Jews.
