The Jews constitute but 1% [now less than 1/2 %] of the human race....
peoples [Egyptian, Babylonian, Persian, Greek and Roman] have sprung
up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in
twilight now, or have vanished. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other
forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?
—Mark Twain, Concerning the Jews, Harper s Magazine, September, 1899.
This book is well researched and makes some very powerful historical and sociological arguments that the achievements of the Jewish people are founded upon God’s supernatural calling of them to be a light to the nations. I highly recommend Jewish Giftedness and World Redemption and believe it will and should be taken seriously by both Jews and Gentiles, especially during this critical time as we see the rise of a new global anti-Semitism that threatens the well-being of Israel and the worldwide Jewish community. —DR. MITCH GLASER, President, Chosen People Ministries
