Heresies, Harold O.J. Brown

Heresies is a book that gives the historical progression of many Christian doctrines. Brown is not a judgmental name-caller of heretics; rather he scholarly presents historical decisions made by the church and the reasons for such decisions. He explains the supposed heretic's point of view as well as the church's, and then lets you decide concerning the validity of judgment. Once one sees the progression of thought that led to some doctrines, they become much harder to criticize. Most people within the church system receive their doctrines watered down and simplistically presented. This leads to many false conclusions concerning these doctrines. This book will help one progress from a basic level of theological understanding to a more technical level. It should also increase one's theological vocabulary. People are incapable of judging doctrines if they don't understand the progression of that doctrine. This book gives the information to properly survey and judge the significance to many doctrines debated over the last 2000 years. 486 pages, hardback

The Messiah in the Old Testament, in the Light of Rabbinical Writings, Risto Santala

This book about the Messianic Old Testament prophecies has already seen five Hebrew editions in Israel. It is the first study written in modern Hebrew by a gentile scholar. According to the writer, he is making a kind of "Nahshon's leap", the first one to jump into the Red Sea at Moses' command. The item is somewhat delicate. The writer is stepping into the lion's den of the Rabbis and into the fiery furnace of the liberal theologians. But he hopes that others will follow him and promote a similar dialogue in the spirit of tolerance and spiritual democracy. 237 pages, paperback.

The Messiah in the New Testament, in Light of Rabbinical Writings, Risto Santala

This volume follows the presentation of the Messiah in the Old Testament. It shows the roots of Christian faith in the light of the oldest and least-censored normative Jewish sources. If the first book was a kind of "Nahshon's leap", the first one to jump into the Red Sea at Moses' command, here we already enter the Promised Land. We dive again into the Bible's own native soil, finding the fulfillment of the Messianic prophecies described in the first volume. From the point of view of their content and mode of presentation, the Gospels dovetail with the same reasoning typical of the "Midrash" or synagogue preaching literature. We do see e.g. that the Lord's Prayer contains phrases and requests from pre-Christian times which have been preserved in the Jewish prayer literature, and the Holy Communion is to be understood as a Messianic meal which hints at an eternal perspective. 264 pages, paperback.

The Midrash of the Messiah: The "Meal of the Messiah" in Midrash Ruth, Risto Santala

Our author found Midrash Ruth while preparing his two main Hebrew books about the Messiah in the Old and New Testaments in the Light of Rabbinical Writings. Midrash Ruth reveals an eternal perspective on the Messianic banquet similar to the Holy Communion in the New Testament. The concepts as "to eat in the world, in the Messianic age, and the world to come",  the "bread of the kingdom", the Messiah who was "wounded for our transgressions", the Messiah who will "rain down manna upon his people", the discussions concerning Elijah recording our good deeds, and "the Messiah and Holy One subscribing and sealing them" provided imposing spectacles for studying other Rabbinical writings. 326 pages; paperback.

Paul, the Man and the Teacher, in the Light of the Jewish Sources, Risto Santala

When the Jews return to the land of their fathers, they will return along a bridge of papyrus," says an ancient proverb. In this way they will return to the home of their roots. As Christians, we too need to return to the birthplace of our faith. This book on Paul is intended as a continuation of the two books Inf-006 and Inf-007. This book describes the course of the apostle's life, the influences he received in his childhood, his education at the feet of Gamaliel and his inner crisis as the opponent of Christianity became the Apostle to the Gentiles. From hundreds of little scraps of information there emerges a close-up picture of Paul's psychology and the foundations of his thinking. 191 pages, paperback.

 Paul, the Jewish Theologian

"Young is one of the important theologians who is leading the way for Christians to explore the Jewish roots of Jesus, Paul, and Christianity. . . . [He] has endeavored to excavate Paul's Pharisaic roots for all to examine, while at the same time leaving the family tree firmly planted and continuing to grow." Rabbi Dr. Burton Visotzky, Jewish Theological Seminary, New York 

"Paul the Jewish Theologian" reveals Saul of Tarsus as a man who, though rejected in the synagogue, never truly left Judaism. Author Young disagrees with long held notions that Hellenism was the context which most influenced Paul's communication of the Gospel. This skewed notion has led to widely divergent interpretations of Paul's writings. Only in rightly aligning Paul as rooted in his Jewishness and training as a Pharisee can he be correctly interpreted. Young asserts that Paul's view of the Torah was always positive, and he separates Jesus' mission among the Jews from Paul's call to the Gentiles.

Jesus, the Jewish Theologian

Permits the words of Jesus to glisten within their own Semitic setting. . . . [Young] has done his readers a great service in introducing them to Jewish theological thought." Marvin R. Wilson, Gordon College  

Jesus the Jewish Theologian establishes Jesus firmly within the context of first-century Judaism and shows how understanding Jesus' Jewishness is crucial for interpreting the New Testament and for understanding the nature of Christian faith. Insights from Jewish literature, archeology, and tradition help modern readers place Jesus within his original context. Particular attention is given to the Jewish roots of Jesus' teaching concerning the kingdom of God.

The Parables

"[This] is an excellent and stimulating contribution to the study of the parables and is well worth reading." Ashland Theological Journal

Fully one-third of Jesus' words in the Synoptic Gospels occur in parables. It could be said that knowing the parables is essential for understanding the person of Christ. In this work, Brad Young displays his unique perspective as a scholar steeped in both Jewish and Christian studies. While parables have timeless messages, reinterpretations in new contexts throughout the centuries have distorted the original meanings and undermined the essence of what Jesus intended for his initial listeners. Young examines the parables that best illustrate the parallels between the rabbinic and Gospel parables. He challenges readers to remember that first-century Judaism was not merely the backdrop for Jesus' teachings but the very stage from which Jesus delivered the message of the kingdom. Jesus' ethics and theology can be properly understood only in the light of first-century Jewish teachings. Young focuses on the historical development and theological significance of parables in both traditions and examines five theological subjects that are dealt with in parables: prayer, grace, reconciliation, calling, and sovereignty.
