Michael Brown

I heard Michael Brown interviewed on the radio today. He's a convert to Christianity from Judaism. He's here in the Pittsburgh area for some speaking engagements, and he'll be debating the Jewish rabbi Shmuley Boteach tomorrow. I don't agree with all of Brown's theology and his past involvement in the Brownsville Revival, but he's produced a lot of good material in response to Judaism, and his treatment of the Messianic prophecies is among the best I've seen on a popular level. He's also a good writer. I highly recommend his series Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus (Grand Rapids, Michigan: Baker Books), especially Volume 3.
