Has anyone read or came across the following author of the following books, he is a Messianic Jew (Christian who believes in Jesus) he has written and debated with Jewish rabbis answering there objections to Jesus, how he was a false prophet, etc etc. Michael Brown makes some very solid and honest references supporting Jesus as the Messiah (Christ). 

Has anyone read any of his books at all ?. As an Orthodox Christian is it okay to receive understanding of Christ from an evangelical Christian point of view ?. Are there any modern Christian Orthodox apologetics very similar to this ? Debating Christ in the old testament there is a post in this section regarding orthodox apologetics but it is on a wider spectrum, i was wondering if there is any apologetics from an orthodox point of view  towards the issue with Jews objecting to Jesus in a similar detail way to the this authors books ?. I have come across the early church fathers apologetics St Justin the Martyr, epistle of barnabas.  

Okay here are his list of books he has written please let me know if anyone has read them and if it's a good tool to learn even though the books are not written by an orthodox Christian?.

I would say if the author utilizes the early Church fathers like St. Justin Martyr, St. Ireneaus, St. Ignatius of Antioch etc., then perhaps so. I read an excellent verse by verse refutation of the Gospel of Thomas by Protestant Christian authors Grant & Freedman with proper citations of the ancient fathers. http://www.amazon.com/The-Secret-Sayings-Jesus-Translation/dp/1566192749  Do not let the title fool you, the book is orthodox.
