dialogue on moral terms
pervades A. Roy Eckardt's

My People: The Meeting of
Jews and Christians" (Quad-
rangle/The New York Times
Book Co.). Out of his agony,
Eck a r d t — a Methodist
clergyman intimately in-

relations — nonetheless cher-
ishes the hope that "for all
their abiding sins, Christians
may champion love and jus-
tice for the Jewish people."

cries, that the one constant
of Christian history is oppo-
sition to the Jews, when the
Christian gospel demands
brotherliness? Why has the
Old Testament become Chris-
tianized to the detriment of
both Jews and Christians?
"The truth remains," he
asserts, "that the historical •
structure of Christianity is •
erected upon a Big Lie" —
the erroneous charge that the
Jews rejected and murdered
Jesus Christ. History and an 0
accurate reading of the facts
tell otherwise; the finger
points to Roman culpability
as the Jewish elders tried to
save Jesus. The New Testa-
ment itself, according to
Eckardt, is guilty of many
a calumny against the Jews
and all too many modern
scholars misinterpret an al-
ready shady history.
