Reluctant Witnesses

Reluctant Witnesses

Stephen R Haynes

$55.00

Paperback
A new conversation in contemporary Jewish-Christian dialogue will begin as Haynes exposes the pervasiveness of the dangerous "Jew as other" myth in our society.

- Publisher

In this thought provoking book, Stephen Haynes takes a hard look at contemporary Christian theology as he explores the pervasive Christian "witness-people" myth that dominates much Christian thinking about the Jews in both Christian and Jewish minds. This myth, an ancient theological construct that has put Jews in the role of living symbols of God's dealings with the world, has for centuries, according to Haynes, created ambivalence toward the Jews in the Christian mind with often disastrous results.
