In the "The Misunderstood Jew," scholar Amy-Jill Levine helps Christians and Jews understand the "Jewishness" of Jesus so that their appreciation of him deepens and a greater interfaith dialogue can take place. Levine's humor and informed truth-telling provokes honest conversation and debate about how Christians and Jews should understand Jesus, the New Testament, and each other.

Written for the general reading public, this is an outstanding addition to the literature of interfaith dialogue.--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
