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.

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."
