Obviously, I disagree with Asher Norman's interpretation of the facts that feature in this book, but he has worked hard to get the facts right, and as far as I can tell, his facts are correct. --The Reverend Doctor John Goldingay, (David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament in the School of Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California. Author: Old Testament Theology, Walk On, Men Behaving Badly, To The Usual Suspects.
This book is the definitive Jewish answer to why Jews don't believe in Jesus. It is readable, well organized, and sometimes quite surprising. The author is candid yet very polite in his polemics. I have found that "Twenty-Six Reasons" shines the light of Torah and truth on the theological issues. The author has found a creative way to present otherwise complex material in a simple manner that allows even a beginner to answer missionary challenges to Judaism. --Rabbi Aaron Parry, Author: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Understanding The Talmud, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Understanding The Hebrew Scriptures.
This is an essential, intense and remarkably powerful work. I would not have become involved in so-called messianic Judaism for ten years (1985-95), even eventually leading my own congregation, had I read only its first pages (had it been available). Thank God my journey has led me to truth, and I am now a Torah observant Jew. --Pesach H. Goodley M. D., Former leader of a messianic congregation.
