Sacred Dissonance is a thought-provoking study exploring the distinctions between religious identities and cultural boundaries of Jews and Christians. Opposing the notion that all faiths are the same, Anthony Le Donne (a New Testament scholar) and Larry Behrendt (a Jewish lawyer) offer introspective essays on topics such as neighborhood relations, hospitality, and the Holocaust—and provide a model for addressing a difficult past and challenging present.

“Honest conversations between Jews and Christians are as important now as any time in the past 2,000 years. Sacred Dissonance marks an important point in that sometimes difficult, sometimes joyous journey of mutual understanding, enhancement, and coexistence. In this book, we are privileged to read the conversations between two brave friends, one Jew and one Christian, who made themselves vulnerable to each other in the hard process of exploring the dissonances between their theological outlooks. The authors are masterful in their honest engagement, handling tough issues with critical poise and careful presentation. Here theological integrity is matched by an ethos of rhetorical integrity—a rare and exquisite accomplishment.”
—Bruce W. Longenecker Professor of Religion and W. W. Melton Chair, Baylor University and author of Hitler, Jesus, and Our Common Humanity.
“Sacred Dissonance marks an important step forward in Jewish-Christian discourse. The essays are candid and probing, the dialogues rigorous, insightful, and devoid of the platitudes so typical in interfaith encounters. Jews and Christians wishing to learn more about each other—and themselves—will enjoy the opportunity to eavesdrop on these rich conversations. I know I did.”
—Rabbi Joshua D. Garroway Associate Professor of Early Christianity & Second Commonwealth Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
“I love this book. Behrendt and Le Donne model for us Jewish-Christian dialogue at its best—witty, respectful, and full of substance. A wonderful contribution to the ongoing conversation between the two faiths, a conversation that I can hope will become increasingly commonplace.”
—Pete Enns Abram S. Clemens Professor of Biblical Studies, Eastern University and author of The Bible Tells Me So and The Sin of Certainty
