SIDELIGHTS: Writer and educator Julie Galambush serves as an associate professor of religious studies. She was an ordained American Baptist minister prior to converting to Judaism, and her religious conversion makes the subject matter of her book, The Reluctant Parting: How the New Testament's Jewish Writers Created a Christian Book, particularly interesting. The volume addresses each book of the New Testament from the perspective of their origins as Hebrew texts, investigating the relationship between the works and the strains put on Judaism, bothat the time and in the present. Ilene Cooper, in a review for Booklist, called Galambush's effort "an important book in the growing canon devoted to the Jewishness of Jesus and his followers." A contributor for Publishers Weekly criticized Galambush for her method of summarizing New Testament text, but otherwise remarked that she "demonstrates that the development of the religion that became Christianity was a slow and torturous journey."

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
