MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores the preached theology of Rev. Ernest Crossley Hunter between 1928 and 1939 as a significant contribution to The United Church of Canada's efforts to respond to Canada's barring of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany. Analysis of Hunter's sermons and speeches, in which he deconstructs Christian supercessionism and replaces it with a theology of Jewish-Christian brotherhood, including in pulpit exchanges with local rabbis, is set within the broader context of Canadian immigration policy, United Church actions, and contemporaneous news reports.
