--author of"Cushing, Spellman, O'Connor: The Surprising Story of How Three American Cardinals Transformed Catholic-Jewish Relations"
"A robust exploration of highly charged and frequently controversial themes -- covenant, mission, Messiah, and more -- that challenge both Jews and Christians. . . . The authors go far beyond the platitudes of superficial 'dialogue' to plumb the depths of their own faith commitments. Readers will be enlightened and enriched."

--Saint Leo University
"These excellent essays at once reflect and move forward the central agenda of the Jewish-Christian dialogue. The contributors, among the best in the field, engage the core issues that unite and divide Christians and Jews, affirming the possibility -- indeed necessity -- of joint Jewish-Christian witness to humanity on the levels of both faith and social action. A must-read for anyone interested in the ancient relationship between Judaism and Christianity -- and in their shared vision of hope for our mutual future." John T. Pawlikowski
--Catholic-Jewish Studies Program, Catholic Theological Union
"A fine overview of central theological issues in the Christian-Jewish relationship. "Covenant and Hope" exposes the reader to both liberal and conservative theological perspectives and provides an excellent starting point for further research and classroom discussion." Rabbi Noam E. Marans
-- Interreligious and Intergroup Relations, American Jewish Committee
"This bountiful volume of independent and cross-pollinating essays offers a tour d 'horizon of the state of Christian-Jewish dialogue and touches upon nearly all of the heady critical issues of interfaith conversation. Scholars, theologians, clergy, interfaith dialogue participants, and all who marvel at the transformation of the Christian-Jewish relationship will gain new insights from each of the contributors." Rabbi David Sandmel
--Catholic Theological Union, Chicago

The second section focuses on the possibility of hope and on responsibility for the future. "
