Useful books

Here are some books I can recommend in this area.

I think I should point out that the authors come from a variety of backgrounds and this will affect their conclusions – for example a Christian will have a different approach to a Messianic Jew (and there’s a wide range of viewpoints in the latter category).

Also, please don’t think I necessarily agree with everything they say (I can’t even remember a fraction of it). But all the books listed have helped me in my studies and (in my opinion) are balanced and sound.

I’ve deliberately omitted a considerable number of books about Messianic Judaism, as this is a slightly different topic to the Jewish roots of Christianity. I’ll do a separate list of these later.

I’ve ordered the list by the author’s surname, and included the subtitle so you can get a better idea of what the book is about.

I've done a post on book sourcing, which you'll find in the marketplace forum. Most, if not all, of these are quite easy to find.

I’d be interested in hearing other people’s views on any of these books, and also any other recommendations.
