Post-Holocaust Jewish-Christian Dialogue : After the Flood, Before the Rainbow Hardback
Edited by Alan L. Berger
This volume sheds light on the transformed post-Holocaust relationship between Catholics and Jews.
Once implacable theological foes, the two traditions have travelled a great distance in coming to view the other with respect and dignity.
Responding to the horrors of Auschwitz, the Catholic Church has undergone a "reckoning of the soul," beginning with its landmark document Nostra Aetate and embraced a positive theology of Judaism including the ongoing validity of the Jewish covenant.
Jews have responded to this unprecedented outreach, especially in the document Dabru Emet.
Together, these two Abrahamic traditions have begun seeking a repair of the world.
The road has been rocky and certainly obstacles remain.
Nevertheless, authentic interfaith dialogue remains a new and promising development in the search for a peace.
