Notes
"With a commentary by Allen Brockway, Paul van Buren, Rolf Rendtorff [and] Simon Schoon".
Includes bibliographical references.
"What are the official theological positions of churches on Jews and Judaism ? And what do these say about Christian faith itself -- in light of what theologians are saying about the significance of the Jewish people for the faith of the church ? The twenty statements by churches and church bodies -- in particular the World Council of Churches -- that comprise the first part of the book, and the commentary that follows, are designed to offer some answers to those questions. This book is offered in the hope that the churches throughout the world will continue to reflect on the significance of the Jewish people for their own faith and life and will undertake with greater vigour the theological re-evaluation that forty years of intentional dialogue with Jews has made incumbent upon us all". -- back cover.
Contents divided into two main sections: The Documents -- The Commentary.
Contents: Statements by the Churches -- General Trends -- Theological Issues -- Final Reflections.
