Jews and Christians

William Horbury

$75.00

Paperback
In this important volume William Horbury makes a significant contribution to the history of Judaism and Christianity and to the debate over the historical significance of polemic, drawing on primary sources hitherto largely unexplored.

- Publisher Jewish-Christian contact and controversy were central to early Christian experience. An understanding of their role in Christian origins and their continuation over the centuries is essential for any serious engagement with the history of Christianity and the history of Judaism. In the twelve chapters of this book, William Horbury focuses on the interconnected subjects of polemic and biblical interpretation. Nine chapters are concerned with the ancient world, beginning with post-exilic Jewish writing and the New Testament and going on to later pagan, Jewish and Christian controversies. Three chapters concentrate on medieval and early modern Jewish apologetic. William Horbury also makes an important contribution to the understanding of under-explored primary sources, both Jewish and Christian.

'Horbury is to be applauded for writing a careful, considered work about ancient Christianity and Judaism, and the contacts between Jews and Christians. His work will further discussion in the academy and, no doubt, engender more fruitful and honest dialogue between church and synagogue. The book garners high praise for its thoroughness and utter lack of cant. William Horbury has peered through the dark glass of Jewish-Christian relations of the past two thousand years and managed to shed light.'
