"Matthew Tapie conscientiously analyzes the terminology of supersessionism and develops a operating definition that allows us to figure the tensions within the writings of Thomas and to appreciate the rival tests of his glossy interpreters. Guided via his insightful observation, we come to determine a Thomas who's either a son of his personal age and a wealthy source for these of our personal occasions 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 continually conscientiously learn simply what that's purported to suggest. we're in Tapie's debt for remedying this example with specific 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 turn into a landmark."
--R. Kendall Soulen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington, DC
"Tapie has supplied a definitive learn on Aquinas's advanced and now and then contradictory studying of Paul as supersessionist or now not. within the approach, Tapie deals the clearest educating i've got noticeable at the which means of supersessionism in smooth scholarship, from Isaac to Wyschogrod, Nostra Aetate, Levering, Soulen, and masses extra. with no overlaying over ambiguities (in) Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, and Hebrews, he concludes with a sober but hopeful account of the trajectory of Thomas's thinking--an account that are supposed to give a contribution considerably to modern discussions of Judaism and the church."

"The drafters of Nostra Aetate, the 1965 Vatican II record that revolutionized Catholic instructing at the Jews, felt that they had to head the entire as far back as Scripture to discover assets for rethinking theological anti-Judaism, so soundly rooted did it look within the church's culture. Tapie exhibits that they neglected extra proximate assets in St. Thomas Aquinas, one of the such a lot respected specialists in Catholicism. The views Tapie has opened are a landmark contribution to the tough paintings of reconciliation among Christians and Jews."
