Marilyn Salmon's persuasive and practical work helps preachers to identify the ways that Christian preachers perpetuate the long tradition of Christian anti-Judaism. She situates the Gospels precisely as Jewish literature then addresses specific thorny issues that arise in preaching: supersessionism; portrayals of the Law; the Pharisees; the relationship between the Testaments; preaching the Passion; and misrepresentations of Judaism. Using examples from many sermons, she shows how to avoid the pitfalls of misportraying the people of Jesus.

"In this hospitable book, Marilyn Salmon gives preachers remarkably helpful advice in overcoming the embedded theology of anti-Judaism that we all too easily pass along unawares. Her book is centrally important in helping the church bear witness to a message of life and well-being for all instead of one that is good news for some at the expense of bad news for others. Highly recommended!"
— Clark Williamson, Indiana Professor of Christian Thought Emeritus, Christian Theological Seminary, Indianapolis

"Marilyn Salmon's book inspires by its passion for truth about the Gospels...and by its genuine belief in the possibility of a better understanding between Christians and Jews."
— Peter J. Tomson, Professor of New Testament and Patristics, University of Brussels
