The focus of this work is Leon Modena's polemic masterpiece, "The Magen Wa-Hereb" ("The Sword and Trowel"). It seeks to make this important document in Jewish polemical thought available to students of comparative religion and persons interested in inter-religious relations. Modena's work is a delicately nuanced text, written with wit and charm. This translation aims to avoid a wooden rendering, being honest to the original, and trying to bring the reader as close as possible to the feeling of the original as well as to its sense.
