The Wanderer, on February 3, 2000, page 6, carried a nearly full page interview: “The Wanderer Interviews Marty Barrack,” by Paul Likoudis. On page 7, Paul Likoudis wrote nearly a full page review: “Second Exodus... A Zealous Apologetic for Catholics and Jews.”
Some quotations from the review:
“The past two decades have witnessed a proliferation of writers, publishing houses, magazines, periodicals, and books devoted to Catholic apologetics ... Among the very finest of these works is the recently published Second Exodus by a Jewish convert to the Church, Marty Barrack.”
“Marty Barrack joins the ranks of the most notable Jewish converts of modern times -- such as St. Edith Stein; David Goldstein and Rosalie Marie Levy; the former Chief Rabbi of Rome, Eugenio Zolli; Dr. Bernard Nathanson, and others -- who have made brilliant expositions of Catholic teaching.”
“Barrack brings the high degree of intelligence, the quick grasp of languages, science, and history native to his Jewish origins and applies them in a succinct and powerful apologetic for the Church.”
“He is a man of the Book, and what is so refreshing -- and what makes this work so exciting to read -- is that Barrack takes all of the words recorded in the Bible -- whether by prophets, kings, judges, or by Jesus Himself -- literally. In other words, he believes God wrote the Bible, and the book is to be taken seriously.”
“Second Exodus primary purpose is to be an entry path for Jews into the Catholic Church ... but every Catholic who reads it will discover a unique, vigorous, and exciting exposition of what Catholics believe.”
“Second Exodus,” which carries introductions by Fr. John Hardon, S.J., and the late Fr. William Most, has provided every Catholic committed to knowing, sharing, and explaining the faith a wonderful tool for the tasks. In addition, Second Exodus is a marvelous testimony of one man’s zeal for sharing the faith. Those looking for signs and wonders of what the Holy Spirit is doing in our times should take a serious look at Marty Barrack’s work.”
