About-

In recent decades Christians and Jews are beginning to ask questions about one another's traditions, to break down centuries-old barriers of prejudice, and to explore not only our differences, but our similarities of faith as well. This book walks the reader through rich but controversial terrain--the Bible, the Holocaust, the state of Israel, anti-Judaism, theology, Christology, intermarriage, feminism, and approaches to education. In each area the reader is asked to listen, to be open, to stretch, and to wrestle with the deeply felt beliefs that unite as well as divide us. The authors, representing Jewish, Protestant, and Catholic traditions, introduce the reader to the terms, content, and intricacies of inter-religious dialogue, the quest for better relations among all those who worship the God of Abraham and Sarah.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This lively and thoughtful volume helps to fill a real need in the literature of Jewish-Christian relations. It well lives up to its title by providing helpful introductions to some of the central historical and theological issues of the contemporary dialogue between our two ancient religious traditions. It will provide a solid basis for further reflections and discussions whether used in the college classroom or as a tool for adult education programming."

Dr. Eugene J. Fisher, Director for Catholic-Jewish Relations, National Conference of Catholic Bishops


"Thoughtful and balanced, this is a book to open our minds and to open our hearts."

Rabbi Harold S. Kushner, Author of 'When Bad Things Happen to Good People' and 'Who Needs God'
