History and hate : the dimensions of anti-Semitism by David Berger( Book )
16 editions published between 1986 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 548 libraries worldwide
The persistence of anti-Semitism is a phenomenon that challenges Jewish historians to make ethical judgments a part of historical analysis. This comprehensive collection meets that challenge as its authors provide fresh insights into the complexities of anti-Semitism for students, scholars, and general readers. The eight essays probe deeply into the dynamics of anti-Semitism as it has appeared in all periods of history -- from the ancient world to twentieth-century America. Each major era is detailed in sharply focused analyses by first-rate scholars, each expert in a specific historical period. - Jacket flap

Cultures in collision and conversation : essays in the intellectual history of the Jews by David Berger( Book )
8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 104 libraries worldwide
In "Cultures in Collision and Conversation", David Berger addresses three broad themes in Jewish intellectual history: Jewish approaches to cultures external to Judaism and the controversies triggered by this issue in medieval and modern times, the impact of Christian challenges and differing philosophical orientations on Jewish interpretation of the Bible, and Messianic visions, movements, and debates from antiquity to the present. These essays include a monograph-length study of Jewish attitudes toward general culture in medieval and early modern times, analyses of the thought of Maimonides and Nahmanides, an assessment of the reactions to the most recent messianic movement in Jewish history, and reflections on the value of the academic study of Judaism
New perspectives on Jewish-Christian relations : in honor of David Berger by Elisheva Carlebach( Book )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 84 libraries worldwide
"The delicate balance between toleration and repulsion of the Jews, a tiny minority living within the Christian world, stands at the center of studies of religion and society. The development of this difficult relationship on many levels, theological, institutional, and individual, is a matter of continuing relevance in religious history from ancient to contemporary contexts. This volume, written by the leading scholars of Jewish-Christian engagement, seeks to revisit the question in light of new sources and re-reading of older sources. The old view of two implacable enemies battling for their version of truth, of Jews living as insular pariahs within a hostile world, the tale of persecution by the mighty of the weak, has given way to a much more nuanced understanding of areas of congruence, of cultural, economic, and social interchange. The volume examines changes in the Christian posture toward the Jews occurring in a time and place of tremendous cultural and religious creativity in Western European society. It seeks to understand how Jews integrated elements of Christian culture into their own. The volume spans some of the key turning points in the Jewish-Christian relationship and re-examines critical texts, religious disputations, and cultural interactions."--Back cover
