OUR TEMPLE LIBRARY
HAS BOTH THE BOOK AND THE MOVIE

The Chicago Tribune says this about CONSTANTINE’S SWORD:

In this rare book that combines searing passion with a subject that has affected all of our lives the novelist and cultural critic James Carroll maps the profoundly troubling two-thousand- year course of the Church’s battle against Judaism and faces the crisis of faith it has provoked in his own life as a Catholic. More than a chronicle of religion, this dark history is the central tragedy of Western civilization, its fault lines reaching deep into our culture. A courageous and affecting reckoning with difficult truths that will touch every reader. 

The book is 756 pages; the movie is 95 minutes. You may borrow the book for a month or two by calling Jerry Medowar at 516-623-6739.

If you wish to see the movie version of the book call me or e-mail me and tell me the day of the week and time that is best. I will try to assemble groups to view it at the times you suggest. My e-mail is address is judgejerry@optonline.net
