Using his journey within historical Jesus research and New Testament studies, Anthony Le Donne illustrates the value in continued Jewish guidance for the Christian life. With the help of Jewish friends and mentors, he has embraced a deeper and more complex Christian faith and gained a better vision of the beauty and genius of Christianity, but also of its warts and failings., This unique book is an exploration of Christianity alongside Jewish guides who are well-studied in and sympathetic to Christianity, but who remain "near Christianity."Reflecting on his journeys within biblical studies and contemporary Jewish-Christian dialogue, Anthony Le Donne illustrates not only the value but also the necessity of continued Jewish friendship for the Christian life.

Weaving his own story and personal conversations with Jewish friends, Le Donne, a respected scholar and published author, models how his fellow Christians can avoid blurring the differences between Christianity and Judaism on the one hand and exaggerating them on the other.
