The Elder Brother: A Christian Alternative to Anti-semitism
The Elder Brother addresses the significant issue of anti-Semitism from a Christian perspective. Each of the book's chapters is based on a separate study that investigates the issues that obstruct inter-faith dialogue. Initially, the book addresses the motif of the elder brother as a representative of the Jewish people. Then, the parameters of the Christian faith are set forth in a direct manner. Also considered is the concept of a "chosen people" and the differences between normative Judaism and the "fifth sect," a designation recalling the Christian Movement before it was associated primarily with Gentiles. It concludes with an account of the Holocaust, a brief epilogue, and a short appendix concerning the troubling question: "Why the Jews?"
