This book traces the role of Judaism and the Jewish people in God's plan for the salvation of mankind, from Abraham through the Second Coming, as revealed by the Catholic faith and by a thoughtful examination of history. I will give both Jews and Christians a deeper understanding of Judaism, both as a religion in itself and as a central component of salvation history.
The book examines the unique and central role Judaism plays in the destiny of the world. It documents that throughout history attacks on Jews and Judaism have been rooted, not in Christianity, but in the most anti-Christian of forces.
Areas addressed in depth include: the Messianic prophecies in Jewish Scripture; the very anti-Christian roots of Nazi anti-Semitism; the link between Nazism and Arab anti-Semitism; the theological insights of well known Jewish converts; and the role of the Jews in the Second Coming.
"Perplexed by controversies new and old about the destiny of the Jewish people? Read this book by a Jew who became a Catholic for a well-written provocative, ground-breaking account. Some of the answers most have never heard before."
– Ronda Chervin, Ph.D., Hebrew-Catholic
"Must reading for Jews and Gentiles. Tracing the relationship between Judaism and Christianity, it gives readers a better understanding of the Scriptures from the beginnings of the Jewish people and examines the historicity of the prophecies about the coming of the Messiah in the Old Testament and in the Talmud."
– Sister Margherita Marchione, Author, Pope Pius XII: Architect for Peace
"Schoeman weaves together fascinating speculations on the ongoing role of the Jews in the light of the Holocaust, the State of Israel, Islam, and the Second Coming. This is an important book for the insights it provides and for the discussions it should provoke."
– David Moss, President, Association of Hebrew Catholics
