Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This surprising book sums up a short lecture series and the stream of essays written in response. While books on interfaith dialog are not uncommon, it is quite singular to have a book that takes up an area of disagreement and finds no easy resolution. Especially trenchant are the essays of Herbert W. Basser and the prolific Jacob Neusner. While the lack of reconciliation here may not be comforting to all readers, this is a salutary addition to the literature of Jewish-Christian interaction. For most collections.
