Levine's book is very short and has a simple message. Its main task is to assist any 'lost' Jews that may be considering 'the other side' i.e. Christianity. The tone of the book is set early on, Levine isn't too concerned about whether he offends the proponents of Christianity. He is quite blunt with regards to some of the points that he makes, however he assures the reader that he is not out to attack Christianity but instead is out to combat the menace of Missionary Christianity (specifically 'Jews for Jesus').
Levine divides his book into three main parts. The first deals with the verses that Christian Missionaries use in an attempt to convert unsuspecting Jews to the 'truth' of the Christian Messiah. The author analyses each pertininent verse adding personal comments and referring to other Jewish scriptural and non-scriptural sources. Some of his comments are speculative at best, for example his treatment of Josephus' writings about Jesus. He believes that the two 'lonely passages' that discuss him were interpolations (as suggested by one of his sources), and hence claims that there is no true evidence of Jesus' great ministry. Other comments he makes are more solid and are backed up by logic and evidence from scripture itself.
The second section is different from the first, in that it is pro-active in dealing with the missionary problem. It prepares the reader with some ammunition in the form of questions, that the missionary may have a few problems answering regarding Christianity. Some points he brings up include the difficulties of the trinity, faith versus works: why do we need the latter at all?, unfulfilled prophecies and the list goes on.
His final section is a collection of letters wherby he has a discussion with an actual Christian Missionary.

Format: Paperback
Excellent book for the Jew who is tired of the missionaries trying to convert them to Christianity and confuse their children into thinking "Yeshua" is Jewish for Jesus. A good handbook for parents who have trouble answering their children's questions about the supposed divinity of Christ. This is a no-holds-barred, non politically correct look at how Christians misinterpret Tanach to fit their own version of reality. Includes missionary tactics and obfuscations, as well as Tanach references used by missionaries and how they are misinterpreted. A must-have book for any Jewish library.

Samuel Levine is "an educator with extensive experience in debating Christian missionaries." He wrote in the Preface to this 1980 book, "This book was written as a response to the many Jewish people that I have met who have either adopted Christianity or were seriously considering it. Since all of them, without exception, did not know the Bible or their Judaism before they were introduced to Christianity, they were easily manipulated by Christian missionaries (some of whom had converted from Judaism themselves). The purpose of this work, therefore, is to demonstrate the arguments used by Christian missionaries, and to present a full presentation of the flaws of those arguments."

Here are some quotations from the book:

"There are really many difficulties with (the Christian) interpretation (of Daniel 9:24-27), which is why the Jews were never impressed with it. The first problem is that the Christians mistranslated the main verse, verse 25. The way they read it is that after seven weeks and sixty-two weeks the Messiah will come; i.e., after 69 weeks... The obvious question is---why didn't Daniel simply write 69 weeks, instead of writing 7 plus 62? The answer is that they mistranslated the verse... According to the correct translation, the anointed one will come after 7 weeks, the city will remain built for 62 weeks, and after the 62 weeks... it will be destroyed." (Pg. 30)
"Another major difficulty is that ... two events were to occur after the 62 weeks---the anointed one would be cut off, AND the city and the sanctuary would be destroyed. As you know, Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 A.D.---which is 38 years after the death of Jesus---more than five 'weeks' off." (Pg. 30)
"Another difficulty is that the Jewish year is not really 360 days long... Thus 445 B.C.

I would like for everyone to realise that God has not changed and He has always had a way for people to be "saved". Jesus did not change anything nor does he fit the reguirements to be "The Messiah".

I chose this rating because I would have liked a bit more information than the book afforded. With that being said, I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book, and I would recommend it to ANYONE if s/he would like to know about the Jewish religion.

A must read if you are being confronted with christian missionaries. A little militant at times, but hey, sometimes that's needed as well.

Very well explained. Debates are writen in a manner easy to understand. Most enlightening for those who are not well versed in the Torah or even the New Testament.
