Elder and Younger Brothers: The Encounter of Jews and Christians, New York: Charles Scribnor's Sons, 1967, and New York: Schocken Books, 1973

The American Methodist scholar Roy Eckhardt gave expression in this 1967 book to his profound shock and disillusion that the Christian churches had for twenty years remained silent about the Holocaust and continued to remain silent about contemporary Jewish existence (he calls it the "new Christian silence"). Only, he suggests by becoming the younger brother once again in the house of God the Father of Israel, will the Church be able to live authentically.
