Redeeming the Past: Traditional Christians and Jewish-Christian Reconciliation

Paul Miller

Paul Miller shows that scholars since the Holocaust have noted the deep-rooted anti-Semitism in Christian theology. Some argue that only a radical foundational critique of traditional Christian exegesis and doctrine will overcome this tendency. However, such a critique would be as unacceptable to traditional Jews and Christians alike. Furthermore, accusations of Christian anti-Semitism sometimes reveal as much about Christiansí attitudes to one another as their attitudes towards Jews. A more fruitful avenue for understanding lies in a search for commonalities in the traditional religious life of both communities. Mr. Miller is minister of Grantham United Church, St. Catharines, Ontario, and Sessional Lecturer at McMaster University.
