This book examines Jewish-Christian relations during one of the most formative but also most obscure centuries, when many of the features that have characterized the interaction of Jews and Christians down to this day were first formulated. Starting from incisive description of canonical and noncanonical literature of this period, Wilson clarifies perceptions of the different groups that were in dialogue and dispute.
"This excellent book is lively, learned, and accessible. Stephen Wilson is master of a very wide range of early Christian and Jewish writings: there is no comparable discussion available. Scholars and students alike will value the author's clarity and balanced judgment."
Graham N. Stanton, King's College, London
"This book is a comprehensive, sensible, sober, and irenic survey of a great deal of complicated material. It calls yet again for scholarly attention to an important formative period for Christianity and hence Christianity's thoughts on Jews and Judaism. It will ahve an enormous effect on the field."
Alan F. Segal, Barnard College
