Older Younger Brother – the tragic treatment by Christians of the Jews

As I pursue my daily work in Iraq I never forget at the heart of my journey here was my love for a very different land and people. Israel and Judaism was and is my first love. It is my academic discipline and also my spiritual passion. I often say that the two most important things in my life were finding my wonderful wife Caroline and secondly studying at yeshiva (rabbinic seminary) in Israel. It was here that I really gained my immense love for the Torah and the great rabbinic writings. It is a love that will never leave me.

I often joke with my Jewish friends that I am more (froom / orthodox) than they are. My Judaic learning was ultra orthodox and thus very conservative, though my first teacher of Judaism whom I have dedicated this book to was a very liberal Rabbi, Professor Nicholas de Lange, who first taught me at Cambridge. I will never forget what he gave me.

This book tells the sad history of the relationship the between the older and younger brothers, Judaism and Christianity.

The book cover shows Canon Andrew White with the Ashkenazie Chief Rabbi of Israel Rabbi David Lau and Rabbi Michael Melchior

    An amazing book – ticks all the right boxes, including some painful ones. Every Christian should read this book. Please, please, please try to get this book made available for my Kindle or in an alternative ebook format, as although it’s a good and interesting read first time through it is also the sort of book you would wish to keep referring to.

    In my eight years of Jewish roots study, this is the most poignant writing concerning the issues of the Middle East and the Church’s role in this dilemma. This material by Canon White should be studied by every serious student of the scriptures. I recently met and talked with Canon White and found him to be a passionate lover of mankind!

    I agree with all the previous reviews. This book is excellent and the writing style is easy to read so that I was able to read it very quickly with a clear understanding of its contents. Indeed every Christian should read it and I will be trying to circulate it to others. Canon White visited Lincolnshire recently and I briefly met him at the church event he spoke at; he is very inspirational and I was so glad about his stand for the Truth, which, as he stated in his book, has been rejected by many of the most Godly early church fathers (which surprised me!) up to the present day.
