No punches are pulled, no fundamental question of faith is avoided - but with humour, kindness, respect and love, fundamental issues of religion are discussed and probed. A timely and amazing book.
This is absolute gold dust. I have never read anything like it before. As a Christian leader with a Jewish family background, and a great love for Jewish people and Jewish roots, I shall treasure and promote widely this amazing volume.
What an interesting book this is! Two learned and deeply religious believers joining in a frank yet respectful dialogue that is marked by a no-holds-barred discussion and a brilliant exegetical study of Sacred Texts they both revere. Every religious person will find these exchanges fascinating, even if they may not accept their ultimate conclusions.
This is absolutely brilliant. It will be one of the best books ever on Jewish Christian relations. It is the real thing, simply excellent.
Judaism and Christianity have for centuries been divided by the same holy scriptures. Anyone seeking to understand the chasm, and how to bridge it, should start by reading this erudite, civilised and charming debate between a Christian pastor and a 'Pharisee' rabbi. Their exchange of letters not only explains the common roots of two great religions in ancient Palestine, but also illuminates the today's conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.
A fascinating book of dialogue between a leading preacher and one of the most famous rabbis of our time.
