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. An eye-opening read, Has God Only One Blessing?-- --summarizes the Church's shared history with Judaism, Church treatment of Jews over time, and its role in the Holocaust. --suggests more sensitive and productive ways for Christians to relate to Jews today --shows how encounters with Judaism affect the way Christians think, teach, and preach about life Both absorbing and enjoyable, this book is for-- o DREs o adult ed classes o catechists o religious educators o pastoral staff o liturgy committees o preachers o church historians o interfaith workers o all serious Christians o and also all serious Jews,Mary Boys, Mary C Boys
