More Description

A Jewish Lights classic reprint. Written in a non-technical way for the layperson, this candid and forthright look at the what and why of the Jewish attitude toward Jesus is a clear and forceful exposition that guides both Christians and Jews in timely and relevant discussion and action. Examining the Jewish perspective throughout history and today, Sandmel introduces fresh discussion on the subject from the standpoint of a rabbi of the liberal wing of Judaism, and presents the scholarship of the last century and a half as pursued by both Christians and Jews. Filled with warm sympathy for Christianity but at the same time with sturdy intellectual honesty and loyalty to Judaism, it explains why Jesus is of cultural and historical interest to Jews, though not of direct religious interest. Without prejudice but admittedly partisan, this book drives home one of the most important lessons of our time?that Christians and Jews can be worlds apart theologically but yet very close in mutual understanding and in cooperation toward desirable human goals. Previously published by Oxford University Press, 1965.
