Book News Annotation:

Revising his doctoral dissertation for the University of Southampton, Langton (Jewish-Christian relations, Manchester U.) offers primarily an intellectual history of Jewish communal leader, philanthropist, biblical scholar, and founder of British Liberal Judaism Montefiore (1858-1938). He places his work in the context of Jewish thought during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and considers how he was profoundly influenced by his Christian surroundings. Distributed in the US by ISBS.

Synopsis:

As a revered scholar, philanthropist and spiritual authority, Claude Montefiore belongs to that important group of learned laymen who have sought to revolutionise Judaism. He was a founder of British Liberal Judaism at the turn of the century, considered to be the most original Anglo-Jewish religious thinker of his day, and still remains a highly controversial figure. Montefiore infuriated his enemies and often alientated his supporters with his radical agenda in which he applied the findings of historical and literary analysis to the Jewish scriptures, attempted to radically systemise rabbinic thought, and by his desire to learn from and re-express aspects of Christian theology. The extent to which he incorporated the teachings of Jesus and Paul into his own ethical and theological musings makes him unique among Jewish reformers. In his dealings with Christians and Christian thought, he can also be regarded as a forerunner to those who would later fully partake in Jewish-Christian dia
