CAMERA Researcher Authors Book About Esther, Anti-Judaism and Israel

Front Cover.jpg

CAMERA Senior Research Analyst Dr. Tricia Miller has written a book that uses an academic approach to demonstrate the relationship of historic theology to current events concerning Israel in order to encourage Christians to support Israel's right to exist and defend itself against those who seek its destruction. Jews and Anti-Judaism in Esther and the Church shows how the anti-Judaism that is a central feature in the Book of Esther relates to contemporary issues within the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict.

Published by James Clarke and Co. Ltd, a long-established British academic publisher specializing in historical and theological books, Jews and Anti-Judaism in Esther and the Church has been lauded by experts and scholars. Reverend Dr. Petra Heldt, a professor at the Rothberg International School at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, declares:

This is the most careful study of the book of Esther and its anti-Jewish interpretations in the Church I have read. By placing the book of Esther in the context of realpolitik and hermeneutics that are filled with Jewish resistance to attempted genocide, Tricia Miller addresses the history of Christian anti-Judaism, the errors of replacement theology, and anti-Zionism as the new anti-Judaism. The book reads like a detective story which, by way of excellent exegetical scholarship and sound academic perception of history, puts the contemporary issue of the contested legitimacy of the State of Israel into the context of the universal right and obligation of self-defence. This investigation represents progressive thinking and the reality of strong bridges built between Jews and Christians in recent times.

Jews and Anti-Judaism in Esther and the Church is due to be released on May 28, 2015. For more information or to pre-order the book, please click here.
