Additional Resources

Power, Faith, and Fantasy by Michael Oren, looks at the history of the United States in the Middle East from 1776 to the present. This book is at once inspiring, heart-breaking, and adventurous as Oren presents this story which has largely been untold. This is an epic tale vividly narrated.

The Real Kosher Jesus by Michael Brown. He has been called a rabbi, a rebel, a reformer, a religious teacher, a reprobate sinner, a revolutionary, a redeemer. Some have claimed he was a magician, others the Messiah. Some say he was a deceiver; others say he was divine. Who is this Jesus-Yeshua, and why are we still talking about him two thousand years later?
     The Real Kosher Jesus takes you on a journey to uncover the truth. It is a journey filled with amazing discoveries and delightful surprises, a journey that is sometimes painful but that ends with joy, a journey through which you will learn the real story of this man named Yeshua: the most famous Jew of all time, the Jewish nation’s greatest prophet, the most illustrious rabbi ever, the light of the nations and Israel’s hidden Messiah. 

The Gates of Europe: A History of Ukraine by Serhii Plokhy. This book is a history of the Ukraine that goes back to the Greeks and brings you to the current crisis facing Ukraine today. Some of the battle narratives can get a little tedious but don't let this stop you from reading this book.
