This book portrays the true story of the Roman Catholic Church’s persecution of the Jewish people for 2000 years. But now Pope John Paul II, Cardinal John O’Connor, some Orthodox Catholic Clergy, Protestant Churches, and many others, are publicly apologizing to the Jewish people for past actions.
This book lists all the anti-Jewish Roman Catholic Church Canons (Laws) issued over the centuries. These Canons made life miserable for the Jewish people, even causing death to many. Why the Christian Churches engaged in anti-Jewish actions is made clear. Germany’s Hitler used the Church’s Canons as a model for his own anti-Jewish laws resulting in the Holocaust.
Both Roman Catholic and Protestant Church Bodies are commended for recently reversing past Church policies. They now declare anti-Semitism a Church sin. Vatican II’s historic “Nostra Aetate;” Pope John XXIII’s efforts for a change in Church policy; Pope John Paul II’s denunciation of past Church treatment of Jewish people are contributing to a new and better future for Jewish-Christian relations.
