Book Description

30 April 2014
Martin Luther's viciously anti-Jewish pamphlet, Vom Schem Hampboras , presented here in its original German and its first-ever English translation, is but one of the many sources translated here for the first time from Latin, Hebrew and German.

This study reviews the earliest Christian writings concerning the Jews and shows how Christian synods and influential theologians legitimised and reinforced hatred of the Jewish people. The book also examines the modern attempts in Protestant and Catholic theology to promote friendship toward the Jewish people.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive work in the area. 28 Jan 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
A remarkable, dispassionate, scholarly work tracing the largely sordid history of Christian church doctrines regarding Jews. The translation of "Of the Unknowable Name" was heretofore the only major work of Luther which was not translated into English. This was no accident, and was not simply because it was the most difficult of Luther's works to translate; the degree of violent outright bigotry in it is enough to raise the hairs on the back of the reader's neck. If we are not to repeat the mistakes of our past, we must bear in mind that the most renowned of Church theologians were but men, and as men, made hideous and consequential errors. This sobering and brilliant work should be the second book in every Christian's library.
