On my desk: Bibliowicz on Jews and Gentiles in the early church

Bibliowicz, Abel Mordechai, Jews and Gentiles in the Early Jesus Movement: An Unintended Journey (New York: Palgrave, 2013)

There is nothing I enjoy more than reading about history (stop yawning please). So I am very eager to see what Bibliowicz has to say about the split in the early church between Jewish and Gentile Christians. A peek at his table of contents, however, makes me already a bit cautious, and I intend to read his book carefully; every chapter title begins with ‘The Anti-Jewish (or -Judaic) Strand in . . .’ The amount of scholarly applause for this book is impressive, so although his conclusions may be quite controversial, I’m sure there will be much benefit to having my own conceptions of the ‘split’ challenged and refined. Thank you, Palgrave (Macmillan) for the opportunity to review this book!
