Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Roy Schoeman grew up studying Judaism under the most prominent Rabbis in American Judaism. After receiving a B.S. from M.I.T. and an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School, he taught at Harvard. His conversion to Catholicism led to a dramatic refocus of his activities.

I have recently completed the reading of "Salvation Is From The Jews" and it has literally changed my life. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I regretted finishing it. There are so many things that I now understand that I never understood before. Perhaps understand is not the proper word, maybe I've just been allowed to see things that I have never before seen. If one tries to understand these things on a strictly intellectual level, one can always find reasons to doubt. I would suppose that is why so many highly intelligent people deny the existence of God. Belief in God is not the pursuit of a weak mind, it is actually the completion of our humanity. Things can initially make no sense to the mind, yet make perfect sense to the spirit. Once the spirit is convinced, the mind follows and both are strengthened in the process.

I am a lifelong Catholic, including 12 years of Catholic school, though I have "fallen away" for quite some time. I have not lived a particularly immoral existence, but a strictly secular one. Last week, I attended Mass (a traditional Latin Mass) for the first time I can recall and I intend to do so again this week. It felt foreign, yet warmly familiar at the same time. The past few months have been the most difficult that I can remember, as I have hit a bit of a rough patch in life. I wasn't particular looking for faith, I was simply reading political articles on the National Review website when I read Mr Schoeman's piece on "The Passion of The Christ". I clicked on the link to his website ([...] read his story, and something clicked inside of me. During the past few weeks, I have been overcome by an enormous sense of peace. I thank God for leading me to Mr.

I just finished reading "Salvation is From the Jews" by Roy H. Schoeman and can't think of a recent book that has impressed me more deeply. Mr. Schoeman's writing style is so readable and logically arranged. He weaves seemingly disparate threads of human history into the inevitable Biblical prediction of Christ's Second Coming. Chapter 6, "Ideological Foundations of Nazism," and Chapter 7, "Anti-Semitism After the Holocaust," give a compelling argument for God's hand in even the most horrific and blatantly satanic acts. I am Catholic, but I believe that even a non-Catholic will be persuaded by many, if not most, of Mr. Schoeman's observations. The bibliography of the book shows exhaustive research, and the writing demonstrates great familiarity with the background material. And it was a thoroughly enjoyable read, in spite of the Holocaust content, from beginning to end.

I found this book a fascinating read on several levels, and so will you. After reading this book as a Cathoic Christian, I now better appreciate Jesus's humanity as a Jew, His divinity as the Messiah, and how His being born by a devout Jewish woman has made all the differenc to our salvation. In a nutshell, this book plumbs the meaning behind Christ's statement: salvation will come from the Jews. It was wonderful to read Christ described through the mindseye of a modern Jewish man and to interiorize the truth that Christ was in fact a faithful Jew who will one day return as, what else, as a Jew.
In these troubled times, this book could not come at a more fortuitious moment. After reading Mr. Schoeman's book, I fully appreciate all that the Jewish people have given to this world through their suffering, their gifts and accomplishments and their truly special role as God's "chosen people." My Catholic faith was further grounded as this book explicitly affirms that Catholicism's foundation rests squarely on the Jewish Faith of our elder brothers and sisters. What's more amazing is pondering, as Mr. Schoeman beautifully and respectfully does, the role God still has planned for His people in saving humanity. Absolutely beautiful!
If you are a serious Christian, this book should be required reading...you'll find yourself half way through it in the first sitting; I did.

As a supporter of the Association of Hebrew Catholics, I can not help but give this book a glowing review. Mr. Schoeman will indeed be credited not only for leading Jews into the Church, but for shaking Catholics out of complacency. This book is informative, sincere, intelligent and most of all compassionate.

If you are a Catholic, or if you have fallen away, this book is a must. If you are Jewish, secular or otherwise, please consider reading this book. In it, you will find that Catholicism does not mean the end of Judaism, but rather the completion of it.

Schoeman discusses the historic, scriptural, and traditional reasons why Jews must turn to Rome not just for its logical end, but also as hope for the future.

This book will help Catholics appreciate their Jewish roots. Through it, hopefully lapse Catholics can realise their submission to Rome is imperative, and that the ties that bind Jews to Catholics are not mere coincidence but rather the plan of a benevolent Creator.
