Who are the Messianic Jews? What do they believe and practice? What is the Jewish community's reaction to this movement? This study traces the development of the movement from its origins in the early part of the 19th century and its transformation in the post-World War years. Focusing on the nature of Hebrew Christianity today, the volume continues with a sociological analysis of its adherents and theological exploration of its central tenets. It also pays attention to the tensions within Messianic Judaism and the central dilemmas it faces in the future.
