Abstract:

"James Parkes was an Anglican priest who became a leading campaigner against antisemitism before, during and after the Second World War. He was one of the first to recognise, and warn against the dangers of Nazism not only to Jews but to Western civilisation. Parkes was also a founding father of the Council of Christians and Jews, an avid student of, and writer on Judaism (in particular the attitudes of the Christian Church towards Judaism), and an insatiable collector of books. The Parkes Library at Southampton University, comprising his one million books, is a major resource for the study of Christian-Jewish relations. Parkes the man has been either forgotten or overlooked since his death, although his work has been a source of inspiration for many over the years. However, there has been a surge in interest in interfaith dialogue, and this biography is an important contribution to the literature on Christian-Jewish relations and one of its most important proponents."--Jacket.
