Embrace a deeper and more complex faith in Christ in Dr. Anthony Le Donne's Near Christianity: How Journeys Along Jewish-Christian Borders Saved My Faith in God! This unique book is an exploration of Christianity alongside Jewish guides who are well-studied in and sympathetic to Christianity, but who remain "near Christianity."
Reflecting upon his own journeys within biblical studies and contemporary Jewish-Christian dialogue, Le Donne illustrates not only the value nut also the necessity of continued Jewish friendship for the Christian life. With the help of Jewish friends and mentors, he presents a deeper and more complex Christian faith, offering readers a better vision of the beauty and genius of Christianity, but also an honest look at its warts and failings. Near Christianity weaves Le Donne's own story and personal conversations with Jewish friends to model how his fellow Christians can avoid blurring the differences between Christianity and Judaism on the one hand and exaggerating them on the other.
