An introduction to what Jewish people believe and how Christians can reach out to them with the Gospel
Many Christians are fearful of engaging in conversations about their faith with Jewish people—knowing that there are complex issues and suspicions that lie deep beneath the surface. And yet there are many points of contact, and much common ground.
This short book is designed to help both Christians and whole churches understand more about the variety of Jewish people we might work with, meet or know, and to reach out to them with the good news of the gospel. Written at a level that everyone can understand, this book emphasizes the importance of forming loving, honest and open relationships as part of the way we engage with our Jewish friends.

Randy Newman is a Jewish believer in Jesus who had the joy of seeing his elderly Jewish parents come to their Messiah. I have partnered with Randy over many years in various types of Jewish outreaches and have always appreciated his great sense of humor, depth of soul, passion for his own people and his uncanny ability to effectively communicate what is important about the gospel message. In this new book, Randy is able to apply his wealth of practical experience and great skills that have been honed over time and tempered by excellent theological training. I know that this book will be a great help in the field of Jewish evangelism and as president of Chosen People Ministries I look forward to using Engaging Jewish People in training my Gentile brothers and sisters to reach Jewish people for Yeshua the Messiah.
To my mind there is no better starting point for preparing to share the gospel with Jewish people than this excellent guide. Page after page, I found myself wanting to cheer out loud because of its wisdom and helpfulness. Nothing in recent years has reinvigorated my own desire to speak to Jewish people about Jesus more than this book. It’s slim in size, but mighty in worth.
This helpful book is an ideal resource for anyone wishing to understand the Jewish people and their religion, and learn how to share their own faith in Jesus with them. It is a practical, prayerful and personal guide, written in an accessible style and dealing in a comprehensive way with the questions that Jewish people ask about the Christian faith.

He perfectly captures both the Jewish psyche and the most appropriate way of reaching out to our Jewish friends. If you have any Jewish friends and want to know how best to reach out to them, then this book is a must.
