About-

This collection of original essays addresses a new and controversial avenue for Jewish-Christian dialogue: the project of liberation theology. While some Jews have welcomed the work of Latin American liberation theologians, others have been critical--both of Christian liberation theology, its treatment of Jewish history and scripture, and of any project of Jewish liberation theology. This dialogue has prompted Latin American liberation theologians to develop in turn their own responses to such issues as the state of Israel, the Palestinian question, the approach to the Hebrew Bible, the meaning of the Holocaust, the legacy of anti-Semitism, and the problem of empowerment in both Christian and Jewish history.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"A pioneering attempt to bring Christian liberation theologians into a needed positive dialogue with Judaism and Jewish theologians. Although unjust and one-sided in its treatment of Zionism, this book is worthwhile reading."
- Irving Greenberg, The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership

"I recommend this interesting and disturbing book which calls for a new dialogue between Christians and Jews on the meaning of justice and compassion in today's world. . . . The discordant voices presented are masterfully analyzed in a final chapter in a final chapter by Marc Ellis."
- Gregory Baum, McGill University
