Seeing Judaism anew

"By linking New Testament scholarship to the Shoah, Christian liturgical life, and developments in the church, this volume addresses important questions at the heart of Christian identity. The essays in this volume offer a conceptual framework by which Christians can rethink their understanding of the church's relationship to Judaism and show how essential it is that Christians represent Judaism accurately, not only as a matter of justice for the Jewish people but also for the integrity of Christian faith."--BOOK JACKET
