Jewish Perspectives on Christianity
For centuries Jews as a minority in a Christian world have rarely, if ever, voiced their negative views of Christianity without first considering the consequences. Still, despite the long history of so many one-sided debates and discussions, Professor Rothschild finds in the five Jewish thinkers represented in this volume and the five Christian theologians who wrote the individual introductory essays evidence of a new relationship which he characterizes by the term "mutuality."
Each of the five Jewish thinkers represents a particular Jewish outlook and each is concerned with what he believes to be the essential nature of Christianity as it appears to him from his historically and existentially conditioned perspective. In turn, each of the Christian "respondents" (J. Louis Martyn on Baeck, Ekkehard Stegemann on Buber, Bernhard Casper on Rosenzweig, Bernhard Anderson on Herberg, and John Merkle on Heschel) deals with the question: Which Judaism confronts here which type of Christianity?
