For the Sake of Heaven and Earth

The New Encounter Between Judaism and Christianity
  • By Irving Greenberg
Product Description
At this turbulent time in our history, Rabbi Greenberg's new book makes an invaluable contribution to interfaith conversation. He calls for Christians and Jews to come together in their continuously evolving partnership with God - dual covenants that demand openness to each other, learning from each other, and a respect for the distinctiveness of the ongoing validity of each other. Now, when the resurgence of anti-Semitism poses a threat to us here and around the world, this powerful book presents a new opportunity to heed the call first put forward by Rabbi Greenberg nearly four decades ago: a call for people of all faiths and cultures to work together to create a world in which everyone can live with dignity and equality - the deserved inheritance of a humanity created in the image of God. personal journey that led to his rethinking of Christianity, initially stimulated by his research on Holocaust testimony, and that ultimately gave rise to the belief that Christianity, Judaism, and indeed every religion that works to repair the world and advance the triumph of life are valid expressions of the pact between God and humankind. In Part 2 he brings together for the first time his seven most important essays on the new encounters between Judaism and Christianity in our generation.Ideal for study groups and course adoption, the book contains a study guide as well as endnotes, an index, and thought-provoking responsive essays by leading Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish commentators, including James Carroll, Krister Stendahl, and Michael Novak. Readers, students, and scholars of Judaism, Christianity, and comparative religions will find this to be one of the most important books of our time on the Christian-Jewish relationship. An ordained Orthodox rabbi and a Harvard Ph.D., Irving (Yitz) Greenberg is president of Jewish Life Network. Learning and Leadership. He has served as rabbi of Riverdale Jewish Center, a professor at Yeshiva University, and founder and chair of the Department of Jewish Studies at City College, New York.
