Your People Shall Be My People (Expanded)$16.00Add to cart
Updated and Expanded Edition of a Landmark Text on an Urgent Topic
Now updated and expanded, this landmark text reveals God’s purposes for his covenant people in these times–and how this revelation is impacting the church. Unlike Ruth in the Old Testament, many of us have turned our backs on the Jewish people, the relatives of the Messiah, and we share the collective guilt for centuries of their persecution. These pages remind us that now, more than ever, we must confess, embrace, and intercede for the chosen people of God, aligning our prayers with God’s plan.
Once again, Israel and her people are center stage at a crucial moment in world history, and this book shows why the church must effect reconciliation and why our prayers are vital in this hour. If we will make the same covenant pledge to Israel that Ruth made to Naomi, the church will never be the same!
What Every Christian Needs To Know About The Jewishness Of Jesus$18.99Add to cart
If you were to ask ten people, Who started Christianity? you might hear ten voices giving the same quick response: Jesus. But those ten people would be wrong. Jesus wasn’t a Christian. Jesus lived and died as a Jew. Understanding the Jewishness of Jesus is the secret to knowing him better and understanding his message in the twenty-first century. Walking through Jesus’ life from birth to death, Rabbi Evan Moffic serves as a tour guide to give Christians a new way to look at familiar teachings and practices that are rooted in the Jewish faith and can illuminate our lives today. Moffic gives fresh insight on how Jesus’ contemporaries understood him, explores how Jesus’ Jewishness shaped him, offers a new perspective on the Lord’s Prayer, and provides renewed appreciation for Jesus’ miracles. In encountering his Jewish heritage, you will see Jesus differently, gain a better understanding of his message, and enrich your own faith.

Betrothed : A Collection Of Love Stories Reflecting An Ancient Faith$19.95Add to cart
Olive Press Messianic (www.olivepresspublisher.com)
Dating? Courtship? There’s something better. The current way our society prepares a single person for marriage has led to an increase in broken marriages and moral disintegration. The ten couples in this book have trailblazed a new, yet ancient and beautiful path to marriage called bethrothal. These couples’ families saw the need to go a different direction–a direction that points toward Yeshua (Jesus) and His spotless Bride. The Tommy and Sherri Waller family is well represented in these love stories. Tommy writes: “Many of these accounts are written by my own children. Their testimonies are the result of God’s mercy in making a presentation to me and my wife, Sherri, many years ago. He enabled us to see clearly that our children were at great risk … Which of our children would make it and which ones would fall? … [W]e [now] have five married children. All of them have chosen to walk through the beautiful process of betrothal. There has never been a time in my life when I have witnessed anything close to the intensity of love birthed from two undefiled hearts as I have in betrothal. Every betrothal I witness confirms in me the Father’s true grace-the unmerited favor He desires to lavish on all of us.” Brayden Waller writes: “The bridegroom heart of God is a recurring theme throughout Scripture. The Bible actually begins and ends with a wedding: first, Adam and Eve in the garden, and last, the marriage supper of the Lamb. Betrothal is an essential key to this whole story. To understand this ancient and Biblical way of marriage is to better understand the relationship we have with God. … Unlike engagement, betrothal is an actual covenant that is made prior to the wedding day … [which] is the very thing God has done with us! He has made a covenant with us by the blood of Yeshua and the wedding is yet to come. Revelation 19:7 tells us of this coming wedding, ‘Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife has made herself ready.’ … Betrothal is much further reaching than the confines of a culture. It is something that the LORD Himself participates in. He says in Hosea 2:19-20, ‘I will betroth you to Me forever, yes I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and justice, in loving kindness and mercy I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness, and you will know the LORD.’ … Whether you are reading this book for the spiritual application of being

Olive Press Publisher (www.olivepresspublisher.com)
Publisher Marketing: Faygala, age 17, lived in Russia in 1904 in troubled times when the Cossack soldiers periodically ransacked her Jewish village; and the Czar’s officers periodically raided to seize men for the army. To avoid all this, many fled to America. Faygala’s family was planning to join her father in the “golden country” as soon as he sent enough money for ship and train passages and for Ellis Island fees and proof of support requirements. But suddenly due to personal danger, Faygala was forced to make the daunting journey alone with people she barely knew. Departing was extremely painful for her, especially leaving a certain young man behind. The thought of never seeing him again tore at her heart. Along the way she faced many difficulties causing her to fear she would never reach her dear father. This 94 page novelette is written by Faygala’s late daughter-in-law from the account as Faygala told it over the years. It draws the reader into her poverty stricken, Orthodox Jewish life in Russia; introduces her Yiddish vocabulary; and instills the amazement she felt upon seeing all the wonders of “modern” America.
