This book is a collection of essays which investigate the current status of dialogue between Jews and Christians. The author argues that Jews have been reluctant to engage in any but the most cursitory conversations with Christians, but that there are positive reasonings for going further. A Jewish Appraisal of Dialogu argues that a certain attitude is necessary for coherant relations.

David G. Schwartz

The writing is passionate...essays represent the ardent efforts of a lay Jew to encounter Christians in honest dialogue and to bring more Jews along to the conversation table. For this, he is to be commended. Encounter This is a remarkable book, for it goes beyond the pleasantries and red herrings of Jewish-Christian Dialogue. In this creative collection of essays, Schwartz does not play games...He works around and over and under the traditions in order to achieve abreakthrough...His questioning approach gains him the time and the space to rethink the underlying assumptions of Jewish response to dialogue. -- Arthur J. Dewey, GOOD NEWS Encounter ...a oerceotive set of reflections on religious and political issues in the recent Christian-Jewish dialogue The author offers an easily readable lay perspective on the current Jewish-Christian relationship that shows a solid grounding in the basic literature. -- Rev. John T. Pawlikowski, OSM, Ph.D., Catholic Theological Union Encounter A collection of essays is rarely a book in the usual sense, but this one approaches that. One author bears witness to the many-sided benefits which dialogue with Christians has brought to him, a Jew. Most Christians and Jews are not interested enough in such an endeavor to become involved in it. There are genuine historical and legitimate reasons why this is so, especially for Jews. But this book is meant to and could change that for people who read it. Let us hope that many do. It is a most stimulating and challenging piece, sophisticated and learned while also compassionate and incredibly gracious. May God bless this book with success!> -- Rev. John T.
