Covers four main areas in the study of Judaism, the development of the major source books, including the Code of Jewish Law, landmarks in the history of Judaism, a study of anti-semitism, including a consideration of Judaism after Auschwitz, and a survey of Jewish-Christian relations (1942-1968).
Aims to bridge the gap between general introductions to world religions at GCSE level, and the more specialist books required by university courses. Designed primarily for those preparing for A-level examinations, this series of books should appeal to undergraduate students and to the general reader, as well as providing a basis for more advanced study. This book covers four main areas in the study of Judaism, the development of the major source books, including the Code of Jewish Law, landmarks in the history of Judaism, a study of anti-semitism, including a consideration of Judaism after Auschwitz, and finally a survey of Jewish-Christian relations from 1942 to 1968.
