Are we rivals for God's love? Dramatic changes in theological thought about Judaism have not yet filtered down to most Christians. This compelling book puts the academic scholarship into an accessible narrative form. Foremost, the book challenges Christians to re-examine their traditional belief that Christianity has fulfilled and therefore replaced Judaism. It also details the anti-Jewish bias in history, literature and liturgy, yet does it without reducing such attitudes to simplistic hate.
