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 literatureboth classics of the field and more recent forayswith 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.
Terence L. Donaldson is Lord and Lady Coggan Professor of New Testament Studies at Wycliffe College and the Director of Advanced Degree Programs at the Toronto School of Theology. He is the author of two other books, including, Jesus on the Mountain: A Study in Matthean Theology, and Paul and the Gentiles: Remapping the Apostle's Convictional World.
... an important contribution to the field.... Donaldson is to be commended for a work that... does not skirt the complexity of the subject or the scholarship, and provides a starting point for discussion that is attuned to the nuances of both.
... this book serves admirably as an introduction to the topics of Christian anti-judaism and the parting of the ways between Judaism and Christianity. Donaldson's treatment is judicious and fair, weighing the scholarly arguments against one another and against the biblical data. In a time when tensions and indeed intolerance, religious and otherwise, are on the rise, Donaldson's book serves as a sobering reminder: our words might have unintended effects on others.
[ Jews and Anti-Judism in the New Testament] is informed, readable and carefully written. As an introduction, almost primer, to the subject, this book may well proved to be the best in print today.
Donaldson addresses the important issue of Christian anti-Judaism, both in the foundational scriptures of the church and in modern interpretation of these scriptures. I heartily recommend this book to one and all.
... a rich and rewarding resource. Indeed, anyone seeking to understand the academic study of Judaism and the NT would be remiss in ignoring the book... I warmly recommend Jews and Anti-Judaism in the New Testament: Decision Points and Divergent Interpretations as an introduction to the debate concerning Jews and Judaism in the NT and as a helpful and concise reference for one's library.
