Campaigner against antisemitism: the Reverend James Parkes, 1896-1981
Vallentine Mitchell, 2005 - Biography & Autobiography - 312 pages
James Parkes, Anglican priest and religious philosopher, cried out to an unheeding Church about the fate threatening the Jews of Europe. When it failed to respond in the measure he sought, he concentrated his energies on combating anti-Semitism in Christian teaching and reaching out in reconciliation to the Jews whom he believed Christianity had failed. This is the first full biography of a very colourful character.
