Fruit for the Lord
Fruit for the Lord
by Adele Pilkington
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.20

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars, 30 April 2015
This review is from: Fruit for the Lord (Paperback)
This book is a beautiful work of art, full of Spirit and life....highly recommended.

Commendations are by Sharon Sanders and Roger T Forster:

Adele's book Fruit for the Lord is a very important book for the vineyard of the Lord. Obviously, her writing has the Spirit of the Lord within its pages and we pray that this book will help others to produce a larger harvest worldwide for the glory of God.
Sharon Sanders - Co-founder, Director, Christian Friends of Israel - Jerusalem

Christ-likeness is the world's greatest need and the Church's greatest lack. Adele observes in Fruit for the Lord that it is the aim of being a Christian. This unique combination of poetry, Scripture and Eira's beautiful art will appeal to many people, helping to produce God's desired harvest.
Roger T Forster - Founder of Ichthus Christian Fellowship - Author and former Chairman of the Evangelical Alliance

Dori... the Donkey of Destiny and Other Donkey 'Tails'
by Adele Pilkington
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars We have thoroughly enjoyed the story of Dori with our young grandson, 18 Sept. 2014
Dori... the Donkey of Destiny and Other Donkey 'Tails'

This is a delightful little book of children’s stories ideal for bedtime or other reading together times. It tells Bible stories and Bible truths in a new and exciting way for small children. We have thoroughly enjoyed the story of Dori with our young grandson, and he is very interested in Dori the donkey’s exploits.

Adele Pilkington’s personal work with children in Sunday School shines through, and we recommend this book to parents and grandparents who want to promote Christian reading material into children’s lives.

This review is from: 5.11 TDU 1.5" Belt Black (Apparel)
5.11 TDU Tactical Belt 1.5" Police Security Patrol Nylon with Plastic Buckle Black The belt is strong and easy to adjust. I purchased it for passing through airport security without having to remove the belt. It was fine passing through Gatwick, but on a return flight the security woman in Tenerife insisted I remove the belt and pass it through the x-ray machine. So until all airports are informed that plastic buckled belts are not a security risk there is the possibility that one will still have to remove even their plastic buckled belts. The product itself is very good.


Songs in the Night (Poetry)
Songs in the Night (Poetry)
by Adele Pilkington
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Songs in the Night, 22 Mar. 2013
I would very much like to bring to your attention a book of poems entitled, "Songs in the Night."

The author of this book of poems is a very dear sister-in-Christ, Dr Adele Pilkington.

Adele intends to distribute her royalties from sales of this book among a number of children's charities as listed on page 82 of her book:

* Education Sponsorship for India's Dalit children
* Orphan's Tear--A ministry of Heaven's Family
* Tikva Orphans Programme
* World Share Child Aid

"How can it be we let them suffer?
How can it be we let them die?
A nation lost in mindless bloodshed; I hear those little children cry..." Page 80.

Be blessed by purchasing a copy for yourself, and bless others by giving a copy or two out as presents for Easter/Passover, birthdays, or just because you are a lover of Christian poetry.

"Please pray for Israel,
For peace in that place,
For love between brother,
No hatred of race..." Page 78

Adele, and her mother Marion, have been wonderful encouragers and supporters of Hashkama and Pointers Magazine, and the Rachamim Trust for a number of years, and I warmly recommend her book to you as one that proceeds from a heart bathed in the love, and the Blood of Jesus, our Messiah.

The Jewish Annotated New Testament
The Jewish Annotated New Testament

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £18.62

5.0 out of 5 stars The Jewish Annotated New Testament, 1 July 2012
The Jewish Annotated New Testament In their claim that this is the first time that Jewish scholars have notated and written essays on the complete New Testament, the editors of "The Jewish Annotated New Testament" appear to be distancing themselves from Messianic Jews or Jewish Christians and ignoring the written commentaries and works by them (with the exception of a mention of David Stern's Complete Jewish Bible as "a Messianic-Jewish translation of both testaments", found in the essay on "Translation of the Bible"), this is non-the-less a ground-breaking publication by acclaimed Jewish scholars.

The editors Amy-Jill Levine and Marc Avi Brettler bring together essays and commentaries by Daniel Boyarin, Shaye J D Cohen, Pamela Esenbaum, Susannah Heschel, Daniel Schwartz, David Stern (the midrash scholar, not the translator of the Complete Jewish Bible), Geza Vermes, Leonard Greenspoon, Mark Nanos and approximately 40 other respected Jewish experts in areas related to the NT gives a non-Hebrew, Jewish perspective on Jesus.

Amy-Jill Levine's "Bearing False Witness: Common Errors Made about Early Judaism is a good starting place to the JANT.

With regard to the Virgin Birth, Aaron Gale suggests that Matthew 1:18-25 constitutes a midrash--a legend similar to the one recounting the birth of Moses.

Lawrence Wills, commenting on Mark's profession that Jesus fulfilled Messianic prophecies, states: "This observation has called into question whether these details actually occurred...Readers should decide for themselves whether actual incidents were interpreted through a scriptural lens or were suggested to the writer from the use of favourite biblical texts." Confusing and unimpressive to say the least!

Shira Lander's comment on 1 Corinthians 15:28 concerning Paul and the Trinity is equally unhelpful. She states: "This passage illustrates Paul's understanding that Christ [the Messiah] is not God, even though Christ incarnates God's wisdom and power...imparts the Holy Spirit...and is the conduit for all existence...Ultimately, Christ belongs to God."

Shaye J D Cohen's Torah negative approach to Paul's letter to the Galations will be frowned upon by Messianic readers.

Martin Goodman's "Jewish History, 331 BCE--134CE" helps readers keep track of the various Herods of the Gospels and Acts, and the historical backdrop of the entire NT period providing very useful material.

David B Levenson's "Messianic Movements" replaces the commonly-repeated trope that all Jews of the Second-Temple period believed in a political conqueror Messiah.

Mark Nanos gives a useful verse by verse commentary on Romans and includes invaluable notes on which words in the translation are present or absent from the original Greek (affecting interpretation), as well as longer notes explaining pivotal aspects of Paul's argument on oft-missed nuances of his language.

This is not a work to shy away from but should be embraced by Christians and Jews and indeed anyone interested in New Testament Studies. There is much to challenge and edify in this work and I warmly recommend it to any serious student of the New Testament. The Jewish Annotated New Testament convincingly reveals the growing and welcome interest among Jews concerning Jesus.

The Jewish Annotated New Testament soared to number 31 on Amazon's top 100 list--before temporarily selling out.


Jesus Under Fire: Modern Scholarship Reinvents the Historical Jesus
Jesus Under Fire: Modern Scholarship Reinvents the Historical Jesus
by Michael J. Wilkins
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.97

5.0 out of 5 stars Jesus Under Fire, 18 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jesus Under Fire: Modern Scholarship Reinvents the Historical Jesus Jesus of Nazareth has come under fire since the time that He walked this earth some 2,000 years ago. Today there are those who follow Jesus, accepting Him as the Way, the Truth and the Life. Others ignore Him, and others again attack Him and what the Bible has to say about Him.

In this age Jesus is still under fire, and one group at the forefront of the attack on Him is known as `The Jesus Seminar'. Faith Under Fire is a refutation of the claims of this group.

The content is excellent, but the quality and size of the print is poor. In an age when people spend many hours looking at computer screens, to tackle a book then with such a small font size can be somewhat off-putting. Not only is the font size small but the pages look as though they have been photocopied rather than printed. Zondervan streamlined the process in record time to get the book out quickly. Unfortunately, in my opinion the quality has suffered. I award the book with 5 stars because of the content and recommend the book for those who are concerned about the attacks on Jesus Christ and who want to consider the evidence objectively.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Meaning of The Bible, 8 Feb. 2012
The Meaning of the Bible One would not agree with all the conclusions drawn by the authors of this book - for instance,on page 165 where it states, "Obadiah-writing perhaps in the sixth century-speaks of the 'exiles of the Israelites who are in Halah,[who]shall possess Phoenicia as far as Zarepath' (20a). This is one prediction that cannot come true, since Phoenica no longer exists." Would Obadiah be likely to mention a particular territory using 21st Century CE designations? There are points made concerning the Book of Genesis that are equally strange. However, the book is well worth reading and I have gleaned much from it, and indeed quoted much from it. I fully encourage the authors in their approach concerning bringing a Jewish understanding of the Scriptures to us - much needed and long overdue! It is a book for both Christians and Jews, and one that I recommend.

This review is from: The Misunderstood Jew (Paperback)
The Misunderstood Jew"The Misunderstood Jew" by Ami-Jill Levine is a rewarding read for both Christians and Jews. "But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their fullness bring!" (Romans 11:12)
We are privileged to live in such exciting times. Whatever the Church gained by moving from its Jewish roots, it lost much more. Today, the Lord is revealing the importance of the Jewish roots to His Church,bringing back the Hebraic context and understanding; and more and more Believers are becoming aware of this. Further, and equally exciting, The Lord is lifting the veil from Jewish eyes so that there is a greater interest, understanding and even turning to Yeshua/Jesus, their Messiah than there has been since he walked and talked in the land of Israel two thousand years ago.
This book is part of the riches that we Gentiles can participate in and enjoy, while at the same time enlightening Jews, giving understanding that Jesus is the Messiah, their Messiah! We can appreciate the revelation that comes by the Holy Spirit through Jewish eyes giving greater understanding of His Word.
Speaking of Jesus of Nazareth Ami-Jill says, "To see and hear him in his historical context enriches the meaning of those all too familiar images and sayings. They become striking again, not just for their spiritual potential, but also for their social engagement. The kingdom of heaven is not, for the Jewish Jesus of Nazareth, a piece of real estate for the single saved soul; it is a communal vision of what could be and what should be. It is a vision of a time when all debts are forgiven, when we stop judging others, when we not only wear our traditions on our sleeve, but also hold them in our hearts and minds and enact them with all our strength. It is the good news that the Torah can be discussed and debated, when the Sabbath is truly honoured and kept holy, when love of enemies replaces the tendency toward striking back. The vision is Jewish, and it is worth keeping as frontlets before our eyes and teaching to our children." I am glad I purchased a copy of this book, and warmly recommend it to others.


ISAIAHS MESSIAH HB

5.0 out of 5 stars Isaiah's Messiah, 11 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ISAIAHS MESSIAH HB (Hardcover)
The version of Isaiah's Messiah [ISBN: 0-915549-75-4] that I am commenting on contains only 76 pages and not 256 as advertised on the Amazon site, so one should consider and clarify that before purchasing.
Isaiah's Messiah was written by Victor Buksbazen, A Jewish beliver in Yeshua/Jesus. He was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1903 and was 'born again' on May 2nd 1922.
He was Editor of the magazine "Israel My Glory" and Executive Director of The Friends of Israel. He was a true classical scholar and spoke seven languages fluently. He devoted his life to serving his precious Messiah. He was steeped in the life and culture of his people, the Jews, and had a passion for proper translation and meaning of biblical texts.
Generally, there is little difference between Jewish and Christian translations of this majestic passage the commentary speaks of, apart form a few words of secondary importance. Howerever, there is a profound and basic difference in the interpretation of Isaiah 53.
I warmly recommend this tiny commentary to all who love God's Word.
