Mordecai Would Not Bow Down

Anti-Semitism, the Holocaust, and Christian Supersessionism

Timothy P. Jackson

  • Analyzes the distinctive place of Schadenfreude in the Nazi Holocaust mentality
  • Resists the tendency to reduce anti-Semitism to something merely opaque or irrational and instead argues that its ideological causes must be recognized in order to combat it
  • Examines how the ideological conflict between Nazis and the Jewish people was an important causal factor in the Holocaust, adding an important perspective to the scholarly literature
  • Draws on ethics, theology, art, and literature--as well as history, psychology, biology, and political science--to make an interdisciplinary argument about anti-Semitism
