An honest, probing look at the dynamics of the New Testament--in relation to problems that disconcert Jews and Christians today. Despite the New Testament's impact on Jewish history, virtually all Jews avoid knowledge of its underlying dynamics. Jewish families and communities thus remain needlessly stymied when responding to a deeply Christian culture. Their Christian friends, meanwhile, are left perplexed as to why Jews are wary of the Gospel's "good news." This long-awaited volume offers an unprecedented solution-oriented introduction to Jesus and Paul, the Gospels and Revelation, leading Jews out of anxieties that plague them, and clarifying for Christians why Jews draw back from Christians' sacred writings. Accessible to laypeople, scholars and clergy of all faiths, innovative teaching aids make this valuable resource ideal for rabbis, ministers and other educators. Topics include: The Gospels, Romans and Revelation-- the Key Concerns for Jews Misusing the Talmud in Gospel Study Jesus' Trial, the "Virgin Birth" and Empty Tomb Enigmas Millennialist Scenarios and Missionary Encroachment The Last Supper and Church Seders Is the New Testament Antisemitic? While written primarily with Jews in mind, this groundbreaking volume will also help Christians understand issues involved in the origin of the New Testament, the portrayal of Judaism in it, and why for centuries their "good news" has been a source of fear and mistrust among Jews.… (més)

One probably should not review a book in light of what one wants it to be, or expected it to be, rather than what it is. My disappointment in this book is that I had hoped it would throw light on what a Jewish reader might find in the New Testament. That's not what this book is about. It is more a book of apologetics -- a guide to Jewish readers by a rabbi in how to read the New Testament without being impressed too much by it. Rabbi Cook's primary interest is the sections of the NT that have been used or abused to advance anti-semitism. He's not much interested in anything else. He wants to point out to the Jewish reader of the NT where these sections are in the NT, and how he, and some other biblical scholars, have come to believe they were added on to whatever is authentic in the NT. He believes in about every case when NT quotes Hebrew scriptures as prophecy (of Jesus being the Messiah), it is a case of later writers combing Hebrew scripture for a reference that they can then put in Jesus' mouth or attribute to an original writer. I was hoping he would see more commonality between Hebrew scripture and NT, but that is not a point of view from which he is writing. I am also disappointed that he fails to see any "Jewishness" in the first Jewish Christians. But there is no reason he should, I suppose, since he is writing his book for the clear cut purpose of arming Jews so they'll be able to answer anyone tossing out antisemitic opinions from the Bible. In no way is this an interfaith reading of scripture. In fact, I'm not sure Rabbi Cook deals with faith - scriptural, Jewish or Christian - at all in this book. ( )
