Removing Anti-Judaism from the Pulpit
Edited by Howard Clark Kee and Irwin J. Borowsky
From The Publisher:
With particular attention paid to fresh analysis and new understanding of the evolution of Judaism in the post-exilic age, this work features an outstanding array of Christian scholars and preachers dealing with the extrememly vexing issue of anti-Judaism in the New Testament and in Christian preaching.
Anti-Semitism (or to be more precise anti-Judaism) has been fueled over the centuries by "the teaching of contempt" from countless Christian pulpits, books and pamphlets. In Removing Anti-Judaism From The Pulpit, an outstanding array of Christian scholars and preachers deal with the extremely vexing issue of anti-Judaism in the New Testament and in Christian preaching. In the first half, New Testament scholars and theologians take up the historical and interpretive issues that have fostered anti-Judaism over the centuries. here particular attention is paid to fresh analyses and new understandings of separate paths taken by Jews and Christian from the century onward. In the second half are sermons that confront anti-Judaism head on. They have been prepared by a distinguished group of Catholic and Protestant scholars and clergy. Removing Anti-Judaism From The Pulpit succeeds in its goal: it heightens sensitivity to anti-Judaism in Christ in Christian pulpits and increases the reader's knowledge of the evidence about Christian origins and suggests fresh approaches to foster mutual understanding between Jews and Christians. Removing Anti-Judaism From The Pulpit should be read by every seminary student, pastor, priest and layman in the Christian community.
