prochements have been taken."
In a sense, this is an excellent
Christian defense. While the emi-
nent Catholic priest reviews the
history of anti-Semitism with con-
siderable skill, he does often gloss
over basic Christian sins. By
equating them with some Jewish
faults, he does not assure exonera-
tion. Some of the faults, the com-
plicity, is the result of the Chris-
tian root of anti-Semitism.
Thus "The Anguish of the Jews"
is in large measure Christological.
But it is a most sympathetic, seri-
ous and thorough study.
