This book makes available in English important essays that mark the fortieth anniversary of the Second Vatican Council’s Declaration on the Relationship of the Church to Non-Christian Religions (Nostra Aetate). Surveying Vatican dialogues and documents, the essays explore challenging theological questions posed by the Shoah and the Catholic recognition of the Jewish people’s covenantal life with God.
Featuring essays by Vatican officials, leading rabbis, diplomats, and Catholic and Jewish scholars, the book discusses the nature of Christian-Jewish relations and the need to remember their conflicted and often tragic
history, aspects of a Christian theology of Judaism, the Catholic-Jewish dialogue since the Shoah, and the establishment of formal diplomatic relations between the Holy See and Israel. The book includes an essay
by Cardinal Walter Kasper, president of the Pontifical Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, and documents on the rapprochement between the Church and the Jewish people.

PHILIP A. CUNNINGHAM, a member of the Advisory Committee on Catholic-Jewish Relations for the U.S. Bishops' Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs, was the founding Executive Director of the Center for Christian-Jewish Relations at Boston College.Review:
"This volume offers of treasure of information for anyone seriously interested in the changing relationship between the Catholic Church and the Jewish people. In a series of articles Christian and Jewish authors examine the evolution of the Church’s new teaching at Vatican Council II, the subsequent official dialogues between Catholics and Jews, and the as yet unsolved theological questions raised for the Church by its recognition of the abiding validity of the Mosaic covenant with the Jews. Invaluable is the appendix with the various draft documents that preceded the final text of the conciliar declaration." (WE MAY MODIFY AS WE WISH) (―Gregory Baum Professor Emeritus, McGill University)
This is an indispensable collection of official Catholic documents and thoughtful essays from key Vatican officials and important
European scholars. It provides a solid foundation for understanding the theological dimensions of the Church's relationship with the Jewish People in our time. No one interested in the contemporary Catholic-Jewish relationship can afford to be without it.
This highly significant book should be in every
theological library, Jewish or Catholic. It presents the history, present status and likely future of Catholic Jewish relations as uderstood by many of its leading practitioners. It is a "must" read for anyone seeking to understand the dialogue, certainly the most
important work in the field to be published this year.
The Catholic Church and the Jewish People is an extraordinarily useful commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the Vatican Council
Declaration on the Jews. Outstanding authorities provide historical perspective, an account of the evolution of the document itself, and analyses of its impact on Jewish-Catholic relations both in the immediate aftermath of the Council and in the long term. An invaluable collection for academics, interfaith activists, and all Jews and Christians interested in the historic transformation in their mutual relations
inaugurated by Vatican II.
