The Problem of Christian Antisemitism by Joseph Keysor
Kindle Edition | Print Edition
Print Length: 99 pages
This third short book in a series shows that hatred against the Jews in the name of Christ is contrary to many plain teachings, and never in any circumstances justifiable. Yet, it was very different in motive and in results from the secular racial antisemitism that drove the Nazis and led to the Holocaust. Close attention is paid to Martin Luther. It is argued that his attacks on the Jews were like David’s sin with Bathsheba – a great failure that should not be allowed to detract from his overwhelmingly positive life’s work. It was also a failure very far removed from all of the exigencies of modern German history and not relevant to an understanding of Hitler.
