My current Bible study group is delving into Genesis, Exodus, Luke and Acts. We were encouraged to read this as supplemental material during the Genesis/Exodus study.

I am SO glad I took it on first. I learned quite a bit, which was to be expected; but, more importantly, I learned history, MY history; and, that Judaism and Christianity are united in many, many beliefs.

For this following statement alone, I'm glad I read this book as it truly sums up my own personal feelings (as a Christian):

OK, the (very slight) negative first. This is a back-and-forth book, discussing various issues from both the Jewish and Christian perspectives. The negative - Jewish side gets a bit whiney. I have both Jews and Christians in my family, and the Jews agree that this is whiney, too.

However, mostly positives. If you are a Christian, this is going to educate you a lot - a lot of things that Jews take for granted, based on their history, that we ignoramuses are unaware of (since no one teaches this st
Very interesting look at the theological similarities and differences among Jews and Christians, and the historical actions and attitudes which have influenced relationships between the two groups. The book is, however, quite dated, referring to the Soviet Union as an actor in the Middle East. I learned much from this book, and it left me wanting to learn more.
I read this book as part of a bible study my church is doing. I didn't know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was informative and insightful, and I came away with a new understanding of how those of the Jewish faith view those of the Christian faith. I reccomend this to anyone who wants to know more about Jewish-Christian relations.
