Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This important volume makes crystal clear how John Paul II dedicated much of his twenty-six year papacy to rapprochement between Jews and Catholics. The writings collected here show that step by step he unpacked the implications of the Second Vatican Council declaration Nostra Aetate, producing a theological body of work with a breadth and authority that remains unsurpassed in implementing the Catholic Church's new relationship to Judaism." — Dr. Philip A. Cunningham, Professor of Theology and Director of the Institute for Jewish-Catholic Relations, Saint Joseph's University, Philadelphia

"A must read for everyone interested in the positive and historic role Pope John Paul II played in Catholic-Jewish relations. Leon Klenicki and Eugene Fisher have rendered an important service that will be an indispensable record for future generations." —Rabbi A. James Rudin, Senior Interreligious Adviser, The American Jewish Committee
