A revisionist reading of early anti-Judaism, in which the author challenges the prevailing opinion and offers a richer picture than ever before of the Jews and Christians of antiquity. 'A very important contribution to the clarifying of the complexity of the relaionships between Jews, Christians, and pagans in Greco-Roman culture.' Rosemary Radford Ruether, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary

Industry Reviews

"A book of compelling and powerful historical argument. Coherent and well documented, his fresh approach treats a difficult problem in a remarkably interesting way. No one concerned with the troubled relationship between Judaism and Christianity, whether in ancient or modern times, can afford to ignore it."--The Journal of Religion "This book brings the study of ancient Pagan and Christian anti-Semitism to a new plateau where one sees things more clearly and, I dare say, more correctly."--Krister Stendahl, Harvard Divinity School "A stunning challenge to some widely accepted ideas on the genesis of anti-Semitism....Priority reading for church historians--and anyone else who wants to study the religious roots of the Holocaust."--Kirkus Reviews "Solidly grounded in authentic evidence and reliable rcholarship."--Journal of Ecclesiastical History "A major contribution to a better understanding of the roots of anti-Semitism in Western culture."--Judaica Books News "A book of compelling and powerful historical argument.
