The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus (Paperback)
In the The Misunderstood Jew, scholar Amy-Jill Levine helps Christians and Jews understand the "Jewishness" of Jesus so that their appreciation of him deepens and a greater interfaith dialogue can take place. Levine's humor and informed truth-telling provokes honest conversation and debate about how Christians and Jews should understand Jesus, the New Testament, and each other.
Written for the general reading public, this is an outstanding addition to the literature of interfaith dialogue.
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Shows how frequently and disastrously inaccurate beliefs about Jesus and early Judaism produce distorted relationships in the present.
-New York Times
“Passionate, witty, and compelling . . . Levine’s depth of knowledge and understanding are evident on every page. . . . There is much food for thought in this wonderful book.”
