Augustine and the Jews

A Christian Defense of Jews and Judaism

  • Paula Fredriksen


“A formidable work of cultural archaeology.”—Bryce Christensen, Booklist

“Impressive and thought-provoking.”—Kevin Madigan, Commentary magazine

"It is a pleasure to write on a book that derives from a modern scholar's brain wave about the fateful insight of a thinker over a millennium and a half ago. . . . This is the story that Fredriksen tells with gusto. Her book is a masterpiece of passionately argued Augustinian scholarship."--Peter Brown, New York Review of Books

“The important story of Augustine and the Jews has never been told as well or as thoroughly. . . . This book is one of those rare works that is both accessible to the general educated reader and of value to experts.”—Paul R. Kolbet, Religious Studies Review

“Carefully reasoned and clearly worded, Paula Fredriksen’s essay must be every critical reader’s point of departure.”—Brent Shaw, Princeton University

“Marvelous . . . Even in the massive field of Augustinian studies, this work stands out . . . A triumph of scholarship on issues which are still debated today.”—Robert McEachnie, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

"A major contribution to the study of Augustine and to the history of Jewish-Christian relations"—Roland J. Teske, Theological Studies
