About-

This book while presenting the contribution of a variety of scholars also presents important statements of Churches today on the Jewish people and her place in God's purpose for the world. It also gives statistics of Jewish communities.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This book is written because the contributors, although at times differing in Biblical interpretation, are persuaded of the importance of the witness of the Jews to God. Its aim is not to present only one interpretation of issues which are difficult to understand, but to stimulate readers to search for and to find what God is saying today to Christians and to Jews, through His word.
This is a very important book that may be expected, if read as widely as it deserves, to influence profoundly attitudes to contemporary events and the ways in which the purpose of God in world history is understood."
-- David H. S. Lyon

"Since there is only one covenant of Grace and only one people of God, the separation of the Christian Church from the Jewish Church represents the deepest schism there could be... The Christian Church is obligated to witness to Christ and proclaim the Gospel to Israel. The Church can only do so by taking seriously the divine election and mission of Israel itself to the world and by incorporating the distinctive witness of the Christian Church within it."
-- T. F. Torrance

"Faith in the Messiah has fulfilled my Judaism... it has brought me back to the God of Israel... Faith in the Messiah has brought me forward to a new Judaism consummated in the death and resurrection of Yeshua and already bringing forth the first fruits of the life of the age to come."
--Mark Kinzer

"Judaism and Christianity should together steadfastly co-operate to establish 'shalom', total peace throughout the world."
--Declaration of the German Roman Catholic Bishops
