About-

This book has grown out of Bible studies carried on jointly by a Dominican priest and a Jewish rabbi. New Testament and rabbinic texts have been studied by various combined groups of Jews and Christians, and the reactions of the groups noted by the authors. From their experience a textbook has emerged for others to use, ideally in similar joint groups.

The main topics covered are 'the great commandment,' the synagogue and its function, the parable, the Sabbath, divorce, and forgiveness. These topics differ not only in subject matter, but also in the type of comparison offered--legal, historical, literary, theological, and even contracting themes.

Reading the texts will produce questions for dialogue - some suggested questions for discussion are also included, also with a useful glossary and a bibliography.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"An honest and lucid account of the parting of the ways between Judaism and Christianity, concentrating on their texts, written by a Reform Jewish rabbi and a Dominican priest. It is reader friendly and utterly absorbing. It shows how both religions shared the same heritage but made something different out of it. This is a relief, as the subject frequently produces more heat than understanding. I recommend it not just to scholars but to teachers and adventurous laity, as well. On two occasions I got so absorbed in it that I missed my underground station. That and frequent underlinings are the proofs of my appreciation."

--Rabbi Lionel Blue
