The Ten Commandments For Jews, Christians, and Others

Roger E. Van Harn, Peter W. Ochs

Paperback 2007-08-28

Publisher Description

In this book eminent Jewish and Christian scholars come together to illuminate the Ten Commandments. Roger Van Harn has arranged the volume so that writers from both traditions dialogue over each of the Ten Words. A Christian or a Jew writes a penetrating essay about one of the commandments, followed by a shorter response from a member of the other tradition ? all done, remarkably, without sacrificing either Jewish or Christian identity. Unique for its authentic interfaith dialogue on dogmatic matters, The Ten Commandments for Jews, Christians, and Others offers pertinent guidelines for believing Jews and Christians today, with the goal of stimulating deeper conversation between the two groups. As Van Harn says, Listening to one another may hold pleasant surprises that open us to new possibilities. Contributors: Carl E. Braaten Roger Brooks Shalom Carmy James A. Diamond Elliot N. Dorff Jean Bethke Elshtain Rochelle L. Millen Richard John Neuhaus David Novak Peter W. Ochs David Patterson Daniel Polish Anathea E. Portier-Young R. R. Reno John K. Roth Byron L.
