In this illuminating book, editor Roger Van Harn gathers Jewish and Christian scholars side-by-side to devote their attention to the Ten Words or Commandments. Each reads one of the Words on several levels through the lens of their own tradition - without sacrificing Jewish or Christian identity - offering guidelines for the everyday lives of believing Jews and Christians today. The essayists present their words in the hope that they will encourage partnership and stimulate conversation.
In this book eminent Jewish and Christian scholars come together to illuminate the Ten Commandments. Roger Van Harn has arranged the volume so that writers from both traditions dialogue over each of the Ten Words. A Christian or a Jew writes a penetrating essay about one of the commandments, followed by a shorter response from a member of the other tradition ? all done, remarkably, without sacrificing either Jewish or Christian identity.
Unique for its authentic interfaith dialogue on dogmatic matters, The Ten Commandments for Jews, Christians, and Others offers pertinent guidelines for believing Jews and Christians today, with the goal of stimulating deeper conversation between the two groups. As Van Harn says, ???Listening to one another may hold pleasant surprises that open us to new possibilities.???
