“The New Testament is full of historical inaccuracies.”
“The Gospels portray a mythical Jesus.”
“Jesus was a false prophet.”
Jewish people commonly raise objections to Christianity based on the New Testament. In the fourth volume of his highly regarded series, Michael Brown explains the Christian response to thirty-four such objections. He addresses questions about issues such as how the New Testament quotes and interprets the Old Testament, the historical accuracy of the New Testament, apparent contradictions in the Gospels and the rest of the New Testament, pagan influences on Christian teachings, and whether Jesus abolished the Torah.
With detailed responses based on careful research of the Hebrew Bible, Rabbinic texts, and the New Testament, Brown thoroughly and respectfully answers these objections and invites Jewish seekers to consider the possibility that the new covenant they have been waiting for is already here.

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.
