Knowles, Melody D., Esther Menn, John Pawlikowski, Timothy J. Sandoval, eds.
Fortress Press, 2007
ISBN: 978-0-8006-3842-9


Themes explored include: biblical authority, texts of violence, tradition, identity and the other, common hope.

"Forthright and compelling, these essays by first-rank historians and theologians explore the ways that the Bible has served as both bridge and battleground between Christians and Jews. Acknowledging difference rather than concentrating on sameness, these scholars call members of both faith communities to the moral and spiritual goal of honest dialogue and mutual respect."
– Paula Fredriksen, William Goodwin Aurelio Professor of the Appreciation of Scripture, Boston University
