Called to Controversy

This is one of the most powerful and interesting biographies I have ever read. Moishe Rosen's life is a true testimony to the power and glory of God. His daughter, Ruth Rosen did a superior job of writing this biography. It is difficult to get a reader to hang on to every word when reading a biography, but Ruth Rosen brilliantly compiled and conveyed her father's life in a way that can change your own.

Not a word or page was wasted in this book. The book begins with Moishe Rosen's family history and then proceeds through his childhood, adolescence, early adulthood, and into the man called by God. The power of God in this man's life was evident as he had to walk through a family who disowned him and controversies that would have made anyone grow faint. Moishe Rosen was surely walking in the Spirit as he walked forward in faith, surely in the strength of Christ, in order to reach his people (the Jews) with the Good News of Christ. This will be story you won't soon forget.

My favorite part of the book was Moishe's wife, Ceil's, postscript, his daughter, Ruth's, Epilogue, and the Appendixes which include a letter from Moishe. These portions were very touching and powerful. I would have loved to hear more about Moishe's thoughts through his conversion, more detail on his inner controversies, but I think Ruth's Epilogue probably summed up alot of his thoughts.
