Publishers Description Most Christians imagine that the poison of anti-Judaism has been largely eliminated. In contrast, Milavec reveals how this poison has gone underground. At each step of the way, Milavec's sure hand builds bridges of mutual understanding that enable both Christians and Jews to cross the chasm of distrust and distortion that has infected both church and synagogue over the centuries. Milavec securely brings his readers to that place where Rabbinic Judaism and Christianity can again be admired as sister religions intimately united to one other in God's drama of salvation.

Dr. Milavec has elegantly and passionately . . . Oct 27, 2008
"A personal, theological, and historical journey, Milavec's volume offers numerous reflections that challenge, that provoke, and that inspire." -Amy-Jill Levine, E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of New Testament Studies, Vanderbilt Divinity School and Graduate Department of Religion, Nashville, Tennessee
"The integration of the new understanding of the Christian-Jewish relationship that emerged from Vatican II’s Nostra Aetate still awaits completion. Aaron Milavec has moved ahead that process to a significant degree in Salvation Is from the Jews: Saving Grace in Judaism and Messianic Hope in Christianity. He has brought together the best of the biblical and theological scholarship on this question in the past several decades from with the official Catholic statements in a comprehensive framework that breaks new ground." -John T. Pawlikowski, O.S.M., Ph.D., Director, Catholic-Jewish Studies Program, Catholic Theological Union, Chicago, Illinois
"With extraordinary candor, Aaron Milavec challenges traditionally held Christian misconceptions about the Jewish Faith and sets the record straight. Salvation Is from the Jews makes it abundantly clear that unlike its relationship to other religions, Christianity shares an intimate bond with Judaism—a common spiritual pilgrimage that deserves to be affirmed and celebrated." -Keith F. Pecklers, S.J., Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome
"Dr. Milavec has elegantly and passionately reframed the dialogue between Judaism and Christianity in purely theological terms and has taken into account both the past and the contemporary scene. He has created a Christian theology of Judaism and it is one well in advance of what is presently in hand." -Jacob Neusner, Distinguished Service Professor of the History and Theology of Judaism, Senior Fellow, Institute of Advanced Theology, Bard College
