Publisher's Description

Breaking new ground in Christian - Jewish dialogue Deep Calls to Deep uses a new paradigm, one which is marked by "experiential theology": a theology that addresses and emerges out of day to day lived experience of practising Christians and Jews.

The product of a unique four year dialogue process - designed, orchestrated and led by Rabbi Tony Bayfield - the book brings together a diverse array of important Christian and Jewish scholars to engage in conversation. Themes discussed include Modern Western culture; how Christians and Jews should live in a modern Western democracy; how Christians and Jews cope with their past; the legacy of our shared Scriptures; the question of religious absolutism; the meaning of respect; Christian particularism; and the land of Israel

Author Bio

Rabbi Tony Bayfield is Professor of Jewish Theology and Thought at Leo Baeck College, London. He is a former President of the Movement for Reform Judaism.

Editorial Reviews

"This volume is a remarkable achievement. It is not just a collection of essays but the fruit of several years of inter-religious learning between a group of Christians and Jews. It shows how inter-religious dialogue in the contemporary world can actually develop and progress. The authors draw on the scriptures and traditions we have received in order to engage afresh with one another and with the cultural and political realities of the world we inhabit together. There is much wisdom in this book and I certainly commend it."
"This is a remarkable collection of essays that celebrates the coming together of two traditions, their walking together, and their shared discoveries on a common journey. Inspiring, challenging and thought-provoking, this is one of the wisest and most illuminating books on inter-religious dialogue to have emerged in recent years. This is a book to treasure, study and meditate upon. It has a richness and depth - rooted in authenticity and originality. I warmly commend these essays for individual and for group study, and for all those interested in how different faiths can walk, learn and live together."
'I can hardly remember a time in my adult life where the need for dialogue has seemed more important than it does today. We must discuss not only what unites us, but engage in meaningful conversation about what divides us as well. Honest, forthright engagement with the Other. Into this context Deep Calls to Deep: Transforming Conversations between Jews and Christians could not be more timely or prescient. Not only the content, but perhaps even more importantly the structure of this provoking work delivers a vision and model for how to enact dialogue between Christians and Jews."
