Description

The first group of essays in Judaism in Monologue and Dialogue raises issues concerning the religious tradition of Judaism: what is normative in ethics; what it means to "be religious" or practice Judaism in the context of the Judaism defined in its own native categories; and the interior life of Judaic religiosity. The second set of essays examines relationships between the communities of Judaism and those of Christianity.
