Renowned scholar Neusner portrays Judaism as a universalistic belief system---speaking a language common to all humanity and offering a place in God's kingdom to everybody. His well-researched perspective is in opposition to viewpoints that present the religion of Israel as merely an ethnic faith with its own esoteric tales and traditions. 201 pages, softcover from Augsburg/Fortress.

In his latest work, Neusner pleas for vindication of "the universal character and appeal of Judaic monotheism in the mainstream of humanity". Of the three great monotheistic religions, only Judaism has survived without political power, military might, or great numbers of adherents, and has done so because its method and message aim to persuade the world of God's dominion and the marks of God's rule.
