The Misunderstood Jew by Amy-Jill Levine

In her book, Levine invites Christians and Jews to understand the “Jewishness” of Jesus. By doing so, we deepen our appreciation of Jesus Christ and perhaps the interfaith dialogue can reach new achievements. Filled with humor and thought-provoking, Levine displays honest conversation and debate about how Christians and Jews should see Jesus, the New Testament, and even each other. The Misunderstood Jew is witty, profound, and enlightening.
