The book reproduces a candid exchange of letters between two leading religious figures ¨ an evangelical preacher and a senior Jewish rabbi.

This groundbreaking publication is a rare opportunity to read the heartfelt correspondence of two prolific and acclaimed theologians, as they both seek to vigorously defend their own beliefs and allow themselves to be challenged by the claims of the other. As the discussion continues we see mutual respect grow and a strong friendship forged before the relationship is inevitably tested as they encounter points of seemingly irreconcilable differences.

Though there are issues and beliefs which separate the two theological camps, this book shows how they share enough to not only get along, but form strong alliances.

‘A fascinating book of dialogue between a leading preacher and one of the most famous rabbis of our time.’

From the Foreword by Chief Rabbi Rene-Samuel Sirat, former Chief Rabbi of France

‘No punches are pulled, no fundamental question of faith is avoided – but with humour, kindness, respect and love, fundamental issues of religion are discussed and probed. A timely and amazing book.’

From the Foreword by Dr George Carey, former Archbishop of Canterbury

‘Judaism and Christianity have for centuries been divided by the same holy Scriptures. Anyone seeking to understand the chasm, and how to bridge it, should start by reading this erudite, civilised and charming debate.’

Anton La Guardia, Diplomatic Editor, Daily Telegraph and author of Holy Land, Unholy War: Israelis and Palestinians

‘Every religious person will find these exchanges fascinating, even if they may not accept their ultimate conclusions.’

Cardinal Thodore McCarrick, Archbishop of Washington
