Faith Strengthened (Chizzuk Emunah): 1200 Biblical Refutations to Christian Missionaries by Isaac ben Abraham Troki
Faith Strenghened is unique among refutations of Christian polemics against Judaism and the Hebrew Bible. As the title indicated, the author (1533-1594) wrote this book for his fellow-Jews, so as to fortify them in their religious faith. This distinguished Karaite scholar critically analyzed the Christological interpretations of the Hebrew Bible, and the theologies which proclaimed the Church to be the “New Israel of G-d” and Jesus the Messiah predicted by the Hebrew prophets. This work contains more than twelve hundred Biblical passages on which Isaac ben Abraham Troki comments.
