Jews and Christians
A Troubled Family
Paperback ISBN: 0687203325
This eye-opening dialogue between a rabbi and a Christian scholar challenges Jews and Christians to examine their misconceptions and prejudices about each other's faith. Here, a Christian and a Jew stand on common ground. Rather than simply interpreting their own respective heritages, each seeks to present his own insights into the other's religious community. Topics discussed include Scripture, God, Jesus, the Holocaust, election, covenant, and mission. Jews and Christians is a living dialogue of faith designed to foster mutual understanding and respect between the two religions.
