Jewish-Christian contact and controversy were central to early Christian experience. An understanding of their role in Christian origins and their continuation over the centuries is essential for any serious engagement with the history of Christianity and the history of Judaism. In Jews and Christians William Horbury makes an important contribution to the understanding of under-explored primary sources, both Jewish and Christian. 'Horbury is to be applauded for writing a careful, considered work about ancient Christianity and Judaism, and the contacts between Jews and Christians. His work will further discussion in the academy and, no doubt, engender more fruitful and honest dialogue between church and synagogue. The book garners high praise for its thoroughness and utter lack of cant. William Horbury has peered through the dark glass of Jewish-Christian relations of the past two thousand years and managed to shed light.' Journal of Biblical Literature 'William Horbury displays an awesome knowledge of a vast range of primary texts and secondary literature. It is worth asking who else could show anything like this kind of command of such an extensive chronological period and such a wide range of texts and themes.' Novum Testamentum William Horbury is Professor of Jewish and Early Christian Studies in the University of Cambridge, a Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and a Fellow of the British Academy.

Religious Studies Review, April 2001 'Horbury is to be applauded for writing a careful, considered work about ancient Christianity and Judaism, and the contacts between Jews and Christians. His work will further discussion in the academy and, no doubt, engender more fruitful and honest dialogue between church and synagogue. The book garners high praise for its thoroughness and utter lack of cant. William Horbury has peered through the dark glass of Jewish-Christian relations of the past two thousand years and managed to shed light.' - Journal of Biblical Literature, (2000) 'Horbury cuts straight to the heart of the issues...He is thorough, thoughtful, and deeply considerate.'
