Publisher Description:
With this thought-provoking memoir, Arthur D. Ullian demystifies the roots of antisemitism and calls on people of all faiths to find a road to healing.

Building on a recent report by The Church of England, a statement from Pope Francis, and Jesus' directive to "Love thy neighbor," the book is set against the current backdrop of rising far-right hatred and the devastating effects of the global pandemic.

In this memoir, Ullian tells a story of being the only Jew in a prep school outside Boston, finding himself the brunt of many admonishments from the pulpit during weekly services in the chapel which all students were required to attend. Listening to the Gospels accusing Jews of committing the worst of all crimes led him to spend years researching history only to discover that the events described could not have happened.

The introduction of a 2019 Report commissioned by the Archbishop of Canterbury, God's Unfailing Word, states that "Christians have been guilty of promoting and fostering negative stereotypes of Jewish people that have contributed to grave suffering and injusti
