5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive work in the area. 28 Jan. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
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.
