Description - Christianity In Jewish Terms by Tikva Frymer-Kensky

Explains to American Jews the core religious beliefs of Christianity and assesses the threats and promises of the JewishChristian encounter from a Jewish perspective.. Over the past few decades, there has been a dramatic and unprecedented shift in JewishChristian relations, including signs of a new, improved Christian attitude towards Jews. Christianity in Jewish Terms is a Jewish theological response to the profound changes that have taken place in Christian thought. The book is divided into ten chapters, each of which features a main essay, written by a Jewish scholar, that explores the meaning of a set of Christian beliefs. Following the essay are responses from a second Jewish scholar and a Christian scholar. Designed to generate new conversations within the American Jewish community and between the Jewish and Christian communities, Christianity in Jewish Terms lays the foundation for better understanding. It was named a Choice Outstanding Academic Book of 2001.
