See what leaders around the world are saying about Ron Cantor’s teaching novel, IDENTITY THEFT.
“There are some of us gentiles who love Jesus, love Jews, love Jesus as a Jew and realize we were drawn into an Hebraic faith when we became Christians, and we have long hoped for better literature to serve our cause. Much that is written about Jesus as a Jew is a scolding distribution of blame rather than an ennobling call to truth. Ron Cantor has changed this. He uses fiction, humor, a bit of fantasy and a time traveler’s imagination to tell us a tale that ought to be told. He makes us know Jesus anew. I am grateful, and I hope he is forerunner of a new tribe on the rise.”
—Stephen Mansfield New Times Best Selling Author
“The emotional depth and immediacy evoked in this novel would be impossible in a theological tome with the same purpose. It’s a book you will want to read at one sitting, and if you’re like me, your only regret will be having to wait for the remaining two volumes of the trilogy.”
—Dr. David H. Stern Messianic Jewish Scholar and Translator of The Complete Jewish Bible
Ron had my rapt attention from page one of the introduction! And What a great title, as Ron effectively portrays the Identity Theft of the centuries! That Jesus has been robbed of His Jewishness! Tragically those who believe in Him would have put Him in the gas ovens of Europe had He lived during their lifetime.
—Don Finto Author, Your People Shall be My People Former Senior Pastor, Belmont Church, Nashville, TN
“I’ve known Ron for a number of years and have always enjoyed his ministry. When I read Identity Theft I was captivated by the story. I couldn’t stop reading until I was finished. What a must read for anyone wanting to be a part of an incredible journey to faith in the Messiah!”
—Dr. Evon G. Horton Senior Pastor, Brownsville Assembly, Pensacola, Florida
Not just dramatic, but exhilarating! An easy to read story that draws non-Jewish readers into Jewish consciousness and Jewish readers into Jesus’ consciousness. While many novels distract people from life, this one contains a life-changing message that can transform a reader’s life. Happy to recommend.
—Dr. Jeffrey L. Seif Chair of the Jewish Studies department at Christ for the Nations Institute, Dallas
Ron Cantor’s new book, Identity Theft, is as riveting as it is revelatory and as entertaining as it is enlightening. With the unique vantage point of a Messianic Jew living in Israel, Ron gives you a guided tour of history from the pages of the New Testament to the Holocaust and then back to the cross for an extraordinarily powerful portrayal of the Messiah’s sacrificial death.

Brown President, FIRE School of Ministry, Concord, NC Host, National Radio Show, Line of Fire Author, Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus Series
This much needed work is important for all seekers of truth.Though I am not much of a ‘fiction’ reader, I quickly found myself engrossed in Ron’s manuscript and unable to put it down. Identity Theft is a great book for both those who recognize the Jewishness of our Messiah as well as those who’ve never truly considered His identity. As we enter into a season of unparalleled anti-Semitism, we must remember that our Messiah was born into a Jewish home, lived as a torah observant Jew, died as King of the Jews and is returning as the ‘Lion of the Tribe of Judah’.
—Scott Volk Pastor, FIRE Church, Charlotte, NC President, Hineni International Ministries
I first met Ron Cantor in our local congregation in Washington D.C. decades ago. It seemed readily apparent he would emerge in a leadership role and this has happened. Now we serve together in MAOZ Ministries (Israel), where he is the winsome televised messenger of God’s Good News of Messiah.
His recent book, Identity Theft, artfully explains the ancient schism between Jews and Christianity. This he does not through dry theology, but rather through an engrossing story.
The book will fascinate both the Jewish and Gentile reader with its pathos. The robbing of Yeshua (Jesus) of his cultural identity has resulted in a terrible and lengthy tragedy to the Jewish people. Ron’s book seeks to restore to Yeshua His original ethnic context. The story helps us to better understand and reveals many, many things.
—Paul Liberman President, Messianic Jewish Alliance of America Publisher, The Messianic Times
Ron Cantor has a written fast-paced novel that powerfully defends the faith. It reflects the understanding of many Messianic Jewish leaders in Israel and speaks the Gospel with simplicity and clarity to Jewish people who do not yet follow Yeshua. This book will open up minds and hearts of not only Jewish people, but many in the Church will be enlightened as they see the first followers of Yeshua in their historical Jewish context.
—Dr. Daniel C. Juster Director, Tikkun International President, Messianic Jewish Bible Institute, Jerusalem
