Reviews & endorsements
"A timely look at the ever-evolving relationship between the two faiths. Compiled under the auspices of the Cambridge-based Centre of the Study of Jewish-Christian Relations, the work comprises over 700 entries that cover people, places, events, institutions and more." Library JournalSee more reviews
"Academic libraries with a religious studies collection and large public libraries will find A Dictionary of Jewish-Christian Relations useful." American Reference Books Annual
"More than 700 alphabetical entries range in length from a few paragraphs to two or three pages. They include biographies (Aaron; Innocent III; Luther, Martin); events (Crusades, Holocaust); places (Jerusalem, Rome); publications and theology (Bible translations, modern English; Commentary); and broad ideas (Chosen people, Resurrection narratives). These examples only scratch the surface. The work is unique in its attempt to take concepts such as Consecration and Dialogue and examine them as they are used in Christian and Jewish contexts, searching for common threads." --Booklist
"A required reference work for every rabbi, priest and minister. In addition, the volume is indispensable for faculty members and students of religion and history on the university campus and in seminaries. Every synagogue and church library should purchase a copy because the Dictionary is a powerful tool in educating youngsters and adult lay people." __ Religious News Service
Kessler and Wenborn have produced a rich resource; all libraries that support programs in the study of Judaism and Christianity should have this volume. Highly recommended.
"An invaluable guide to Jewish-Christian Relations, unique in its conception and scope. It will be a key resource in a crucially important area of dialogue and engagement." -- The Rt Reverend Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
"This is the most comprehensive Dictionary on Jewish-Christian relations ever to be compiled and will be of great benefit not only to scholars but also to the lay man and woman. Arguably no relationship of any two faith communities in the course of history has been both so close and so far apart as that of Jewry and Christendom. Yet this new era has both produced and affords a relationship between the two, based upon sincere mutual respect in which both the profound differences as well as the 'shared patrimony' can be genuinely appreciated. This Dictionary will have a special place in reflecting and facilitating this process." --Rabbi David Rosen, President, the International Jewish Committee for Interreligious Consultation International Director of Interreligious Affairs, The American Jewish Committee
