 With her father’s help, Moishe Rosen’s daughter Ruth wrote an honest book about an outstanding, but human person—a man not perfect.

              Various contradictions young Rosen had noticed fostered his desire for truth. He wanted to be a good Jew and avoided Christianity for years after marrying Ceil, also Jewish. Friends shared Christian ideals with the Rosen’s, stopped when asked to, but always prayed for the couple.

             Eventually Ceil secretly bought and read a Bible. After Ceil found Jesus her changed life fueled Moishe’s search for more truth.

             Rejected by family and friends, the Rosen’s found strength as they learned Christian principles. Moishe never feared controversy when he knew what God wanted. He studied and searched for truths to guide his life and never deviated from them, even when he upset fellow workers. His desire to mentor other leaders influenced thousands of lives.

             Rosen spent years working for Christian missions groups, feeling called to help Jewish people find their Messiah. How he fulfilled that calling, never flinching from opposition, is fascinating reading.

             Ruth Rosen details more of her father’s faults than we may need to know, but her father approved. He never felt that he was exceptional. Few who knew him or read this account would agree.

         The book will challenge readers to evaluate their own lives.

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by, a book promoter.
