What People are Saying About This

John T. Pawlikowski

"Offers us sensitive reflections on key religious texts that have produced pain and separation in the past, and shows us a way through these texts to a more wholesome and productive encounter between the two faith communities. A welcome addition to the dialogue on Christian-Jewish relations."
OSM, PhD, director, Catholic-Jewish Studies Program Catholic Theological Union, Chicago; president, International Council of Christians and Jews

Alan Race

"Startling in its innovative approach... shatters the mold of most approaches to Gospel commentary. It imaginatively yokes together historical scholarship, literary freshness and commitment to interreligious dialogue-all with a spiritual energy that is unnervingly evocative for our turbulent times."
editor in chief, Interreligious Insight: A Journal of Dialogue and Engagement

Rami Shapiro

"Excellent and insightful... a fresh and dynamic model for Jewish-Christian collaboration. This book is going to open minds and, more important, change hearts."
Rabbi, author of The Divine Feminine in Biblical Wisdom Literature: Selections Annotated and Explained
