This book is a collection of essays which investigate the current status of dialogue between Jews and Christians. The author argues that Jews have been reluctant to engage in any but the most cursitory conversations with Christians, but that there are positive reasonings for going further. A Jewish Appraisal of Dialogu argues that a certain attitude is necessary for coherant relations.
