peace on earth & goodwill towards men
- Highly Excellent and ESSENTIAL. I've been exceedingly busy so I've not read it complete from front to back. but I've read good chunks and will finish it once I have the time. This should be REQUIRED reading for all Pastors.
- 4.5 Stars I have read large chunks of this book outside of Logos. It's a good book, and because I've not read it all, you can take what I will say with a grain of salt, but I have some minor criticism. He makes good arguments, but given the rather extreme nature of some critical scholarship, I suspect books like this would simply be dismissed for giving too much credence to church fathers' writings on Jewish-Christians. The thing is, they are confusing, and even some of them remark they may not have a full understanding of the people they are talking about. Ultimately patristic evidence REQUIRES interpretation which is well founded. Continental writers, many, but not all Jewish writers, would simply dismiss the book entirely. I really do not know what the answer is to scholars who approach Jewish Christianity with essentially polemical preconceptions. This isn't a strong criticism of Pritz' book. I'm just saying it's not a revolutionary work. it is definitely helpful though, and I do recommend it.
- This book is excellent. I wish I had it in Logos.
