Overview

Two eminent scholars, each expert in his own tradition, take Jewish-Christian dialogue to a new level. Aiming at neither mere description nor conversion, each presents the classical elements of his traditions understanding of three fundamental, common religious questions: where to meet God, how to live, and what to hope for. The other then responds. Neusner and Chilton's analytic comparisons of two great traditions intertwined at the roots serves as a primer on the defining energies of both traditions. The reader is invited to identify the traditions' unity of questions and the equally strong differences in answers and thereby illumine one's own faith commitments about belief, piety, and the purpose of human life.
