About-

The People of God

Several factors make this a compelling and topical book:
- The anti-Jewish sentiments that can still disfigure much Christian teaching and writing

- The baffling fate and often shocking politics of the State of Israel in recent years and months

- The faltering progress towards ecumenical unity of Jews and Christians

- The need for a united witness to Jesus as Jew and as Son of God

Markus Barth, Professor of New Testament in the University of Basel, combines passion and scholarship in this summons to a recognition of the brotherhood of Jews and Christians. He discusses with authority both the current theological climate and the biblical basis--in particular, the writings of Paul--on which a true doctrine of the 'People of God' should be built; and he calls for a new relationship characterized by frank and honest criticism, but especially by fraternal love.

Endorsements & Reviews-

Markus Barth is not just a New Testament exegete, but a biblical theologian. Furthermore, he is an "engaged" theologian with a history of first-hand experience and passionate involvement with the "Jewish question," starting from his student days in early-1930s Germany, when his father founded the anti-Nazi Bekennende Kirche, right to the end of his life. And how better to explain that biblical-theological base than Markus Barth does in his three slender works Israel and the Church, Jesus the Jew, and The People of God? Throughout these three books, Barth's primary concern is to overcome old Christian attitudes toward the Jews.
