About-

No one would disagree with the assessment that Christians, over the centuries, have been guilty of anti-Semitism, sometimes with barbarous results. The real question is not whether individual Christians have been anti-Semites, but whether anti-Semitism is somehow ingrained in the very roots of Christianity, in its very essence. Rosemary Ruether has declared that anti-Semitism is the "other side of Christology," the inevitable fallout of placing Jesus at the right hand of the Father.

The contributors to this volume consider that larger question from several vantage points. Their findings are vitally important for Christians and Jews alike. Not only do they explore the beginnings of Christian anti-Semitism, they help us understand the dynamics of the religious impulse for all peoples and all times.

The contributors to this volume include John C. Meagher, Douglas R.A. Hare, Lloyd Gaston, John T. Townsend, David Efroymson, Monika K. Hellwig, Gregory Baum, John T. Pawlikowski, Douglass J. Hall, Alan T. Davies, Terence R. Anderson, and Rosemary R. Ruether.
