3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Dexter Van Zile on September 14, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book does a tremendous job of describing the manner in which Christians have a tendency to put flesh-and-blood Jews into theological categories, which ultimately, pose a threat to the safety of the Jewish people. Using a variety of sources, the author shows how Christians tend to view Jews as a sign of the presence of God in history, and how this can result in unreasonable demands and expectations.
