A Book About House Churches, Visionary in Some Ways, Short Sighted in Others

Published in Blog

As currently conceived, this blog is a depository for more “crunchy” thinking and writing than my other on line venues, including but not limited to reviews of books I am reading. Currently, my reading is in the service of a book I am writing, Show Me The Way To Go Home, which will process life experience…

Some Reasons Why Advocating for Jewish Yeshua Faith is Often Condemned

Published in Blog

I am an enthusiast for Jewish people embracing the more Jewish Jesus (a.k.a. Yeshua) as Messiah.

I don’t blame them, because the way the significance of Yeshua is usually…

Spiritual and Relational Peace-Making Where Jews and Christians Intersect

Published in Blog

The other day a good friend asked me to succinctly state what my niche is–what it is I am and do.

I Believe. . . That The Way The Gospel is Normally Presented is Bad News for the Jews

Published in Blog

In a couple of months,  I will be speaking in Chicago to a group of sophisticated Christians, Jews who believe in Jesus, and some curious Jewish people. My topic will be, “Is Your Gospel Good News for the Jews?” As I demonstrate conclusively in my forthcoming book, “Converging Destinies: Jews, Christians, and the Mission of…

I Believe In . . . God’s Everlasting Love for Israel

What follows is a tiny and edited snippet from the first chapter of my soon to be released book, Converging Destinies: Jews, Christians, and the Mission of God (Eugene, OR: WIpf and Stock, 2017). It is offered here to inform, to stimulate discussion, and even to whet your appetite for the book when it comes out…

Something’s Coming

Published in Blog

It was probably 1957 or 1958, when I was thirteen or fourteen, that I saw West Side Story with my parents. After all, Leonard Bernstein was a M.O.T. (Member Of the Tribe) and therefore we just had to go. It was great. Still remember the experience, and that was certainly in a universe far far…
