Jews and the Christian Imagination: Reluctant Witnesses is an interdisciplinary analysis of the ancient Christian myth that casts Jews as a 'witness-people', and this myths's presence in contemporary religious discourse. The book treats a range of diverse products of the Christian imagination, including systematic theology, works of fiction, and popular writings on biblical prophecy. Key chapters treat Karl Barth and the German Church struggle, the work of American novelist and philosopher Walker Percy, the writings of Christian Holocaust theologians, and the views of fundamentalist Christians influenced by the eschatological tradition known as dispensational premillennialism. The book demonstrates that the witness-people myth, which was first articulated by Augustine and which determined official attitudes toward Jews in medieval Christendom, remains a powerful element in the Christian imagination, even in the post-Holocaust era.
