> Description

Christ Jesus and the Jewish People Today explores the historical, biblical, christological, trinitarian, and ecclesiological dimensions of this crucial question: "How might we Christians in our time reaffirm our faith claim that Jesus Christ is the Savior of all humanity, even as we affirm the Jewish people's covenantal life with God?" This volume is the result of a transatlantic collaboration among Boston College, Catholic Theological Union, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Lund University, Pontifical Gregorian University, and Saint Joseph's University.

Peter A. Pettit
— Institute for Jewish-Christian Understanding, Muhlenberg College
"Stunning in its scope, erudition, and creativity, this work is without parallel or peer. . . A watershed contribution to a new era in the Jewish-Christian encounter, as both communities increasingly take decades of dialogue experience back into their own theological workshops and strive to fashion a more adequate account of God's work among us."
Alan Brill
— Seton Hall University
"This book opens up new vistas after forty-five years of Catholic-Jewish reconciliation. Not comfortable with resting on prior accomplishments, this work is a bold step forward in Catholic searching for a closer theological bond to Judaism without giving up the differences between the two faiths. . . Offers the cutting edge of Christian theological views of Judaism."
