By Matthew A. Tapie,Pim Valkenberg
"Matthew Tapie conscientiously analyzes the terminology of supersessionism and develops a operating definition that allows us to parent the tensions within the writings of Thomas and to appreciate the rival exams of his sleek interpreters. Guided through his insightful observation, we come to work out a Thomas who's either a son of his personal age and a wealthy source for these of our personal instances looking a Christian theology of Judaism that's trustworthy to the educating of Nostra Aetate."
--Mark S. Kinzer, President emeritus, Messianic Jewish Theological Institute, Ann Arbor, MI
"Christians this present day frequently repudiate supersessionism, yet they don't consistently conscientiously learn simply what that's presupposed to suggest. we're in Tapie's debt for remedying this example with targeted connection with the theology of Thomas Aquinas. Tapie's wealthy, thorough, and multidimensional photograph of Aquinas's perspectives on Jewish observance of the ceremonial legislation after Christ is destined to develop into a landmark."
--R. Kendall Soulen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington, DC

--Peter Ochs, Edgar M. Bronfman Professor of recent Judaic stories, collage of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA
"The drafters of Nostra Aetate, the 1965 Vatican II record that revolutionized Catholic educating at the Jews, felt that they had to head all of the as far back as Scripture to discover assets for rethinking theological anti-Judaism, so soundly rooted did it appear within the church's culture. Tapie indicates that they ignored extra proximate resources in St. Thomas Aquinas, one of the so much respected experts in Catholicism. The views Tapie has opened are a landmark contribution to the tricky paintings of reconciliation among Christians and Jews."
