Product Description

Review

Rabbi Baruch HaLevi--coauthor of Revolution of Jewish Spirit"A rare literary gem. . . . Marvin Wilson's mastery of both Christian and Judaic texts, theologies, and traditions is nothing short of staggering. Equally, however, this book is easily accessible for students and seekers, not just academics; for congregants and parishioners, not just clergy. Jews, atheists, and Gentiles alike can all find their way into and through this truly informative and inspirational work. . . . Here is reading for the mind, the heart, and the soul."David Neff--former editor-in-chief of Christianity Today"As a historical religion, Christianity must own its Jewish origins and live up to the best of that heritage. Marvin Wilson, a pioneer in evangelical-Jewish relations, makes a compelling argument for renewing Christian faith by recovering our Hebraic heritage. If only there were more like him, we could have a healthier church."R. Steven Notley-- coauthor (with David Flusser) of The Sage from Galilee"Masterful. . . . Wilson builds on his previous tour de force, Our Father Abraham, to deepen our understanding of the Hebraic roots of Christian theology. There is no doubt that this work will impact the thinking of yet another generation of Christian readers, fostering Jewish-Christian understanding and spiritual renewal in the church."Susannah Heschel-- author of The Aryan Jesus: Christian Theologians and the Bible in Nazi Germany"For two thousand years, we have longed for a Christian scholar of Judaism as sensitive and knowledgeable as Marvin Wilson, and his work fulfills our hopes. Insightful and deeply learned, this book is a remarkable example of a Christian theology that affirms Judaism with respect and appreciation."

Exploring Our Hebraic Heritage by Dr. Marvin Wilson In ... 30 Sep 2014
By Raz Pesher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Exploring Our Hebraic Heritage by Dr. Marvin Wilson
In this short (272 pages plus bibliography & index) Wilson expresses well-researched and thought-out answers to essential questions involving Jewish-Christian relations. Wilson is fearless and does not sugar-coat the long-term individual and group historical effects of antisemitism for both Jews and Christians.
Wilson states: “Today, owing to an increasing openness in Christian-Jewish relations, a remarkable change is underway. Increasingly, a sincere desire to understand the other has resulted in mutual respect and self-correction. “…”This current rediscovery of Jesus the Jew could come about only through an honest assessment of the past, social change, and a new interreligious encounter that is willing to take risks, readjust attitude, and right wrongs.”
“Exploring Our Hebraic Heritage” is based not only upon Wilson’s life-time studies but his practical work in Jewish Christian relations with his students, Jewish & Christian communities, and Holocaust survivors including Sonia Weitz. Rather than dwelling on what separates Jews and Christians, Wilson chooses to facilitate education, dialogue, understanding, and acceptance between Christians and Jews.
The Jewish Perspective:
“For two thousand years, we have longed for a Christian scholar of Judaism as sensitive and knowledgeable as Marvin Wilson, and his work fulfills our hopes. Insightful and deeply learned, this book is a remarkable example of a Christian theology that affirms Judaism with respect and appreciation.” Susannah Heschel,
The Christian Perspective:
“As any one of Marvin Wilson’s countless students could tell you, the treasury of learning, insight, and wisdom found in this book emerges from a lifetime of integrity and faithfulness. This long-awaited sequel immediately takes its place alongside his best-selling “Our Father Abraham.” James C Whitman
