An A to Z companion to 2,000 years of encounter between Judaism and Christianity, A Dictionary of Jewish-Christian Relations is a pioneering work which explores and defines the many factors which characterise the historic and ongoing relationship between the two traditions. From Aaron to Zionism, the editors have brought together over 700 entries - including events, institutions, movements, people, places and publications - contributed by more than 100 internationally renowned scholars. The Dictionary offers a focus for the study and understanding of Jewish-Christian relations internationally, both within and between Judaism and Christianity. It provides a comprehensive single reference to a subject which touches on numerous areas of study.
This is an invaluable aid in helping readers become better acquainted with key issues involved in the relationship between Judaism and Christianity. It brings together significant discussions of major theological and religious topics that are an integral part of the faith dialogue between Jews and Christians.
Since its inception, the organization operates on the premise that religions have great power and through theological dialogue, we can harness that power for good. To that end, the CIU works with and influences religious leaders of all beliefs by exploring their common goals, as well as their religions’ theological foundations. By creating constructive systems for fighting religious stereotypes and intolerance, the CIU fosters bridges of understanding, reconciliation and peacemaking vital to meeting the interfaith challenges of the 21st century.
