Reviews - What do customers think about Judaism in the Beginning of Christianity?
Simply excellent - an eye opener. Apr 8, 2003
The title says it all, as regards the contents of the book. However, Jews and Christians both would benefit from reading this book. A masterful work by a great Jewish scholar. This book was on my reading list for an introductory course in Christology offered by a Catholic university. While it aims to address beginner students in the field of Christianity, it does not specifically aim at Christians and those of the Jewish persuasion would gain much from reading this book.
