The Unusual Suspects: 25 Jewish People Defy the Final Taboo Paperback – November 18, 2008
The Amazon Book Review
Author interviews, book reviews, editors picks, and more. Read it now
Twenty-five people who give their testimony as to how they discovered Jeshua, Jesus as their personal Saviour and Messiah. (CLC World Magazine)
"Each Testimony is an honest and down-to-earth record of the trials and mental struggles they experienced before coming to the realisation that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah. With that realisation came the understanding that following Christ did not make them any less Jewish" (Evangelical Times)
"Richard Gibson has done both Jewish people and goyim a great service in collecting these fascinating stories. I've lost count of the number of people who have said to me over the years, 'How can you be Jewish and believe in Jesus?' Maybe this book will make that poorly-informed question a thing of the past." (Nick Howard, Association of Evangelists)
"A wonderful collection of personal stories to challenge, instruct and encourage your faith! For nearly 2,000 years there has been a myth that Jews don't believe in Jesus - but this book shows that they do! These 25 amazing stories show that Jewish people today, from different backgrounds and with different beliefs and experiences, are making a great discovery. They are coming to know Yeshua (Jesus), and finding true fulfilment in their lives, faith and identities. The Messiah has come, and Jewish people are discovering him!" (Richard Harvey, Vice-Principal, All Nations Christian College, Ware, England)
"Jesus had a special place in his heart for "the lost sheep of the house of Israel", and these 25 fascinating examples of that love are a powerful reminder that he has not forgotten them today. Richard Gibson has done the church a great service in collecting together so many painfully honest, touching and challenging stories. Each exposes the contributor to the risk of criticism and misunderstanding that most British Christians don't face today, but that only opens our eyes to the reality that being a disciple can be very tough and yet truly liberating." (Michele Guinness, author)
"What a great encouragement it was to read these wonderful stories of Jewish people who found the Messiah, Yeshua. The fact that these people - from such diverse backgrounds, ages and experience - each came to the same conclusion and response regarding Yeshua (Jesus), must surely stir readers to examine the evidence and find out for themselves. I pray that many will." (Helen Shapiro, Singer & author of Walking Back to Happiness.)
