Reviews - What do our customers think?
Brilliant and Honest  Nov 29, 2001
I have never read a better book on Anti-Semitism. Ruether is a well-known Christian theologian, whose original thinking has both spawned and solved great questions.

This book is a study of the phenomena behind anti-Semitism, but it is unlike any other study of this subject. The author traces the history of Jewish/Christian conflicts back much further than the early churches of Paul, where most authors begin. Ruether looks all the way back to the division of Christian Jews from other Jews over disputes in interpreting the Torah, and books of prophecy.

The study considers the social pressures of the early church to balance somehow the connection to Judaism, and the pressures from the burgeoning state of Rome, but she strips this question entirely of apologetics, demonstrating that deliberate choices were made, not out of desperation, but often for personal gain.

Reuther doesn't pull her punches. When there is blame to be laid, she lays it squarely on the head of the guilty party. But don't think that this is some kind of book of grudges. Ruether is an highly qualified historian and theologian who crosses all her t's and dots her i's. Before she makes any statements of guilt, she builds an extraordinarily strong case, that will have you sadly nodding your head.

Ruether writes with a light touch, never belaboring a point, so the book moves quickly; there is something fascinating on every page. This is a difficult book to put down. It's not often that such an academic subject is turned into a book read for pleasure, but Ruether has done so. Despite squirming sometimes just over the thought of the injustices inflicted on Jews, the joy of discovery ran deep, and I couldn't put this book down.

deconstructing the myth  Dec 13, 2000
This is an important book worthy of great exposure. Exploring the development of anti-semitic attitudes of the church and its early leaders,the author reveals how the condemnation of the Jewish faith became an integral part of early Christianity.The idea that the Jews rejection of Jesus began two thousand years of persecution is a concept which should be directed towards the mainstream of religious thought. It is from this seed that the myth of the Jewish people's responsibility for everything from the black plague to control of international banking developed. As these sterotypes became ingrained in the Christian consciousness over the centuries they gradually shifted from a religious to a racial form of hatred resulting in the destruction of European Jewry by the Nazis in the 20th century.For anyone interested in discovering the truth about the roots of anti-semitism there is no better place to begin than with this book.
