This is book is an exploration of Christianity alongside Jewish guides who are well-studied in and sympathetic to Christianity, but only ever "near Christianity." Not only did the borders created by Jews and Judaism help to define early Christianity, even today dialogue with Jewish teachers continues to reveal the very heart of Christian identity. Using his journey within historical Jesus research and New Testament studies, Anthony Le Donne illustrates the value in continued Jewish guidance for the Christian life. With the help of Jewish friends and mentors, he has embraced a deeper and more complex Christian faith and gained a better vision of the beauty and genius of Christianity, but also of its warts and failings.
