This passionately argued book, written by the bestselling author of The Historical Jesus and Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography, will strike a chord with "anyone concerned with the rising tide of anti-Semitism in our world, anyone fascinated by the origins of Christianity, and anyone who likes a good mystery" (Susannah Heschel). "An excellent study".--Library Journal.
