"The Torah doesn't speak of Jesus at all!"
"This verse has absolutely nothing to do with your Jesus. It's not even a messianic prophecy."
"As for the real messianic prophecies, Jesus fulfilled none of them."
Using the Hebrew Bible, rabbinic texts, and the New Testament, Michael Brown provides thorough answers to nearly forty objections regarding Jesus as the Messiah. This third installment of Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus looks specifically at questions raised about messianic prophecies in Isaiah, Daniel, Psalms, Haggai, and Zechariah. It's an invaluable resource for seekers and for anyone wanting to point students of the Torah to Jesus.

Michael Brown's thinking is incisive and to the point. His ability to explain so that anyone can understand is amazing. He will surely be acclaimed as the new expert in Jewish Christian apologetics. I would be happy to recommend his much needed book to anyone.
We desperately need this book!
Michael Brown's work in the area of Jewish apologetics is the most thorough and penetrating I have seen. There is no doubt in my mind that this work will make a major contribution to the ongoing discussion and will, in fact, set the standard in the field.
Michael Brown excels as a true scholar as well as an apologist; his answers to objections are carefully thought out, honest, and well-researched. His work provides a useful model for how to do apologetics, not only in dialogue with the traditional Jewish community but for all who are interested in articulating and defending the Christian faith.
