TORONTO, May 5, 1995 [i.e. 1997] -- The Anglican Church's national office was the scene this morning of an historic meeting of Canadian religious leaders with the Hon. Allan Rock, minister of justice, to discuss the issue of Nazi war criminals in Canada.
The meeting was organized by the Canadian Jewish Congress. Rabbi Reuven Bulka, chair of the Interreligious Affairs committee, said "This is the first time since the end of World War II that many of Canada's major religious leaders will be meeting with the minister of justice to discuss the moral imperative of bringing Nazi was criminals in Canada to justice".
The delegation included leaders from the Anglican, Evangelical Lutheran, Roman Catholic and United Churches, and the World Sikh Organization, stressing that the war crimes issue is of concern to all faith groups.
The Anglican Church was represented by the Rev. Eric Beresford, consultant on ethics and interfaith relations. The Primate, Archbishop Michael Peers, issued the following statement:
In the light of the holocaust, Christians of all denominations have been involved in a re-examination of our relationship to Judaism and the Jewish people. For Canadian Anglicans, this is expressed concretely in our participation in the Canadian Christian Jewish Consultation. In that context we seek to assure members of the Jewish Community that we, "will persist in fighting anti-Semitism wherever it exists". (GS / 1983, 35.5)
For some years Anglicans, along with other Christians, have sought to express liturgically their penitence for those failures of the Christian community which have contributed to anti-Semitism (e.g. GS / 1992/39), and for the fact that elements of the Christian community actively supported the holocaust. We have sought to express our common commitment to ensuring that the holocaust will never happen again. (1)
In previous statements, with reference to the genocide in Rwanda, and war crimes in the former Yugoslavia, we have expressed our horror at war crimes and genocide and have called upon, "the government and international community to ensure that those responsible for organizing and / or implementing genocide, and for gross violations of human rights be justly tried and, where guilty, be punished." (GS / 1995/74.4 c.f. NEC / 1993 May / Resolution 13-05-93)
In the light of this background we wish to add our voice in solidarity with that of the Jewish community to request that every effort be made to pursue proceedings against war criminals in Canada in a manner that is both just and expeditious.

"[By] Daniel R. Langton".
"Special Edition for the 2008 Lambeth Conference".
Includes bibliographical references and bibliography, p. 39.
"Few words evoke a wider or deeper range of emotions amongst Christians and Jews than those associated with the 'Holy Land' and the reasons are not far to seek. 'Zion', 'Israel' and 'Jerusalem' and many others, are foundational words and points of reference in our scriptures, our liturgy our theology and formations of identity; but they are also foundational in the politics of the Middle East. .... If any of these words had one layer of meaning and resonance only, it would be a complex enough matter. But for most Christians and Jews, each has multiple layers of resonance which comes to us from many sources and senses, making it hard to disentangle them and to be as able to use them comfortably and meaningfully as we might wish. For these reasons the informal meeting of Jews and Christians from the Church of England known as the Lambeth-Jewish Forum, has sought to produce this resource ... in the hope that it will help ordinary Christians and Jews -- and many others -- to deepen our own and each other's understandings." -- Foreword.
Contents: Foreword / Ed Kessler, Guy Wilkinson, Co-Convenors of the Lambeth-Jewish Forum -- Acknowledgements / Daniel Langton -- Introduction -- Jewish Perspectives: How is 'Israel' Understood in Jewish Thought and Tradition ? -- What is the Significance of the State of Israel for Jews ? -- Christian Perspectives: How is 'Israel' Understood in Christian Thought and Tradition ? -- What is the Significance of the State of Israel for Christians ? -- Institutional Statements -- Multi-layered Language: Unpacking the Words We Choose to Use -- Glossary -- Further Resources -- References.

"Bishop Neill has wisely refrained from producing 'yet another introduction to the non-Christian religions'. Rather this is 'an attempt to understand them in their contemporary crises, and to make an assessment of them from a Christian standpoint'. The method is that of dialogue, and the aim is not to delineate other faiths from without, but to enter 'into the heart and spirit of another religion', yet without disloyalty to one's own, seeking what is positive in them, and the questions they may rightly ask of Christianity, as well as the pertinent questions about God and man which Christians may put to them. Chapters are devoted, not only to Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism, but also to the faith of contemporary primitive peoples, and to two modern Western 'gospels', Marxist Communism and Existentialism". -- front dust jacket blurb.

"The chapters of this book present, after further reflection, the substance of eight Lectures delivered, by invitation of the Faculty of Divinity, in the University of Cambridge, during the eight weeks of the Michaelmas Term of 1966. .... How might a will to genuine and reciprocal diversity within the one faith of Christ undo this heavy western bias of its modern history ? How might 'Englishness' be transcended, as 'Jewishness' first had been, in the true fullness and freedom of the Holy Spirit. This is the 'perspective' meant in the title. What follows here is no more that an essay. It aims only to illustrate what an answer might involve in three areas where it must be given, namely in relation to the Jewish, the Islamic and the Africa, with some reference also to the secular temper." -- Preface.
