The Chosen explores Judaism’s key defining concept and inquires why it remains the central unspoken and explosive psychological, historical, and theological problem at the heart of Jewish-Gentile relations. Crisscrossing the twin cultural and theological divides between Judaism, Christendom, and Islam, The Chosen explains how the Jews, of all people, have come to represent at once the epitome of both the good and the odious. Beker covers not only the great stories of how the Jews came to be chosen and the Christian, Muslim, and Nazi efforts to appropriate the title, but also the key role “chosenness” plays in contemporary anti-Semitism and in the current Middle East conflict over the Land of Israel and the chosen city of Jerusalem.

The UnCivil University tells a cautionary tale of how higher education, an institution touted for its open-mindedness, has become a prime vehicle for politically motivated prejudice against Jews and Israel. It exposes the unspoken world of double standards, bureaucratic paralysis, and abdication of leadership that not only allows but often supports anti-Jewish extremists on campus.
