5.0 out of 5 stars Scholarly and hard hitting December 16, 2006
Dan Gruber painstakingly delves into the history of anti-Semitism in the church and gives a splendid overview of contemporary theological positions that are the result of this attitude. Without reservation, he summarizes the errors inherent in each of these theologies and their resultant unfortunate consequences in the Church-Jew relationship.

Gruber takes no prisoners. He is critical of the theology of even of the patron saints of "Christendom" including Augustine, Luther and Calvin. His history is accurate and his assessments are Biblical. Rightfully, he argues that the Gentiles ought to be indebted to the Jews for having brought the Gospel to them. Yet, (using my own words) the Gentile church has viewed the Jews as "second class citizens" in what should be regarded as their (the Jews) own house... i.e. the church.

Mr. Gruber gives some practical suggestions on what the attitude of the church ought to be. 1. The church ought to have a faithful love for the Jewish people. 2. The church should be praying for the salvation of the Jewish people. 3. The church needs to be engaged in active and loving evangelism of the Jewish people, acknowledging that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah. 4. The Church should be providing comfort to Israel. 5. The church should acknowledge that God has given the land of Israel to the Jewish people. 6. The church should be proclaiming to the world that God judges the nations according to the way they treat the Jewish people. 7. The church needs to understand the context of its future and past as recipients of a Jewish blessing , in essence, the covenant made with "the House of Israel and the tribe of Judah" (Jer. 31). 8.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historical evidence of why we ought to pray for Israel September 9, 2007
This book is a revelation about the Jewish people as a nation and their relationship to the rest of the world (the gentiles or goyim). You will come to understand why and how they have been persecuted so intensely along the centuries, especially by those called Christians in the organized church since 325 at the Council of Nicea. This is so much a history book as a good biblical interpretation of the role the Church and Israel play in prophecy fulfillment.

What is so difficult to understand in "You worship what you do not know, we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews" (John 4:22)? The organized church right after the Apostles' time became marriaged to the emperor Constantine, it was a state-religion, therefore the real gospel of Jesus Christ became diluted. What was supposed to be love between jew and Gentile (Goyim in Hebrew) became hatred. It wasn't meant to be so. We both, who are born of water and the Spirit, who worship the God of the Jews in Spirit and Truth, are the Church. But the Gospel of God was substituted by the word of Man, and its errors were accumulated along the history. The state-church wanted to believe that the the Kingdom of God of prophecy had come, because the same emperor had brought it and forced it on his people. The organized church sold its soul, but God always kept his remnant, I believe among both groups (Gentiles and Jews), despite the rule of this phony church up to the Reformation. Changes were made after the Middle Ages, during Calvin and Luther's time, but the hatred towards Jews persisted.

This is a fresh and clear exposition of the errors of the organized church, of the growing up together of wheat and tares, perhaps it's time now for the reaping.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good read May 8, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Daniel Gruber has written a very important book. There is much in The Church and the Jews that needs to be known by those who claim to believe Jesus is their Messiah. A life changing book for those who thought they knew their Bible.
