Item Description...
Overview
For more than thirty years the discussion group "Jews and Christians," sponsored by the Central Committee (a federation of groups) of the German Catholic Church, has worked to overcome prejudices and encourage greater understanding between these two great religious faiths. Currently made up of ten Jewish and sixteen Catholic members, the group has since 1979 sponsored conferences and conventions; revised curricula for religious education; and conducted study tours to Israel, New York, Paris, Hungary, and Poland. Over the years, the dialogue has produced a number of important position papers and guides, the most significant of which are collected in this book: a 1979 summary of the issues that would be the subject of the dialogue, reflections on the fiftieth anniversary of the Kristallnacht massacre, on Auschwitz, and on the Shoa, a statement on Pius XII and the Jews, a guide to the Holy Land, and a set of reflections on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. American readers, too often burdened by their own stereotypes about Germans, can benefit by reading these papers and coming to a better understanding of how Jews and Germans are working together to overcome the tragic history that continues to affect the modern world in profound ways, in the Middle East and beyond.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A somber, respectful search for enlightened common ground between faiths  Apr 7, 2007
Edited by Hanspeter Heinz and Michael A. Signer, Coming Together for the Sake of God: Contributions to Jewish-Christian Dialogue From Post-Holocaust Germany gathers position papers and guides from the discussion group "Jews and Christians" sponsored by the Central Committee (a federation of groups) of the German Catholic Church. Currently composed of ten Jewish and sixteen Catholic members, the group has sponsored conferences and conventions since 1979 among other activities to promote religious education, study, and dialogue. Coming Together for the Sake of God is partly about repercussions from the Holocaust, and partly about critical issues in Jewish-Christian theological dialogue, and the essays range in date from 1979 to 2005. In addition to the eight main essays (including "After Fifty Years: How Can We Talk about Guilt, Suffering, and Reconciliation?", "Reflections on the Shoah", and "Pope Pius IX and the Jews"), Coming Together for the Sake of God also includes a set of responses to the work of the discussion group. Appendices offer more information on the diverse contributors, membership lists for the discussion group, and more. A somber, respectful search for enlightened common ground between faiths, especially in the wake of genocidal historical atrocity.
