A defense of Judaism versus proselytizing Christianity by Isaac Mayer Wise( Book )

10 editions published between 1889 and 2017 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume hereby presented to the reader was written and published in response to those missionary chieftains of the city of Cincinnati who took a vulgar renegade from Judaism by his hand, and appointed him a missionary to the Jews; and, notwithstanding the man's illiteracy, furnished him with a pulpit, and invited the Jews week after week by pompous advertisements in the public press and handbills freely distributed in the streets, to come and hear that renegade. The author, considering that uncalled-for action of church dignitaries an insult to Judaism, felt it his duty to resent it, and so he did. Here is an answer to the main question, why the Israelite can not embrace Christianity. Quite a number of books exists, in which the relative points are discussed, although the author recollects none written from his standpoint of universal brotherhood, universal salvation and universal religion, moral freedom, political equality and the supremacy of reason, with the highest respect for Judaism, Christianity, the Islam and every other religion in harmony with the postulate of reason and the standard of conscience. - Preface

The origin of Christianity, and a commentary to the Acts of the Apostles by Isaac Mayer Wise( Book )

Jewish-American rabbi Isaac M. Wise wrote this book to examine the early history of Christianity. He uses the texts of the New Testament as his guide and pays particular attention to passages that seem to indicate behind-the-scenes disagreements among early Christians. Wise also draws on the Talmud and other rabbinical books to provide contemporary historical, archeological and literary perspectives on the period in which Jesus and the apostles lived. "Without the Talmud," the author states, "a perfect understanding of the original Christianity is almost impossible."
