Called to Controversy

by Ruth Rosen

This one's a missionary biography--the life story of Moishe Rosen, the founder of Jews for Jesus. The standard plotline for a missionary tale is the missionary feels the call from God, gets an education, heads out to a foreign land, struggles to adapt to life in an alien culture and to connect with people, and finally makes a difference amongst the people he or she went overseas to serve. Moishe Rosen's biography follows a similar line, but is a bit inverted. The conversion story--his own--comes first. The "culture shock" hits when Moishe goes off to Bible school in New Jersey to live and study amongst the Baptist gentiles. His life story is an enjoyable journey and an interesting peek into the functioning of ministry and evangelism from the 1950s through the 1990s.
