Library Journal Review

Eakin (Jewish and Christian studies, Univ. of Richmond) has written an introductory text that treats some of the main issues in Jewish-Christian relations in a superficial manner. Part of the publisher's "Studies in Judaism and Christianity," series it is both historical and topical in its methodology. Eakin traces the development of anti-Semitism from its biblical roots in the New Testament, through the seemingly institutionalized anti-Semitism of the medieval church, to moments in the American experience from Colonial times to today. He also examines the theological basis of Jewish-Christian relations as found in recent official statements by several major American Christian denominations. Study questions at the end of each chapter and a practical six-point program describing how to establish and maintain Jewish-Christian dialog today are the main contribution of this work. Practical but insubstantial; not recommended.‘Pius Murray, Holy Apostles Coll. & Seminary, Weston, MA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
