This is one of my prized books on Christian history. I've been interested in the Jews even before I became a Christian 35 years ago. I was even more interested in why the Christian Church wasn't. Why did my church, and the rest of Christendom, shove the Jews aside when Jesus was a Jew?


Many, many books later, I finally understood why and this illustrated history of the attitudes towards the Jews by the Church has been invaluable to me as I sought to be convinced that there were, indeed, Christians who hated Jews; when I sought to understand, and believe, that such a thing as Replacement Theology existed.


I used the illustrations in this book for a Powerpoint Presentation of the History of Ant-Semitism called Parting of the Ways. I wish there were a version of this book with removable plates because it was very difficult to photocopy the prints.
