- ""An engrossing, persuasive, and highly readable introduction to diverse ways in which scholars have interpreted the New Testament in relation to anti-Judaism. Donaldson's excellent book will surely lay the groundwork for future discussions of this important topic."---Adele Reinhartz, Professor, Department of Classics and Religion, University of Ottawa" ""Donaldson's study is a judicious and balanced treatment of one of the most difficult issues in New Testament interpretation."---Robert Jewett, Guest Professor of New Testament, University of Heidelberg" ""An excellent and much needed introduction to a difficult subject that will enrich scholars, students, and the general reader."---William S. Campbell, Reader in Biblical Studies, University of Wales Lampeter" ""This is a sensitive, level-headed approach to a tension-filled topic."---John Koenig, Glorvina Rossell Hoffman Professor of New Testament, The General Theological Seminary, New York" ""Perceptive and engaging. Donaldson demonstrates that interpretative decisions have moral implications that cannot be neglected. His own constructive proposals can only enhance responsible engagement with scriptural texts in today's complex world of faith."---Bruce W. Longenecker, Professor of Religion and W. W. Melton Chair, Baylor University" "Jews and Anti-Judaism in the New Testament offers a balanced, sensitive, and erudite guide to the precarious issues of anti-Semitism, anti-Judaism, and supersessionism in the New Testament. Combining adept navigation of the relevant literature---both classics of the field and more recent forays---with a keen exegetical analysis of the Christian canon, Terence L. Donaldson maps the major New Testament writings across three axes: self-definition, degree of separation, and rhetorical intent. In doing so, he successfully brings his readers up to speed on this crucial discussion, even while pushing the conversation forward with intellectual force and exegetical savvy."--BOOK JACKET.
