Summary
Jacob Neusner, scholar and author on Jewish literature, history, and religion, believes that Jews and Christians do well to seek in their encounter with the teachings of the living God the wisdom, imagination, and insight of the ages. "In this book," he writes in the preface, "I want to contribute some modest measure of my own faith, Judaism, as that faith may add to the faith of our Christian neighbors, for all of us now dwell together in the new catacomb, the darkness of disdain for our common faith in one God, creator of heaven and earth, judge of all humankind. This is a book of religous faith."--Publisher's description
