The amazing, historic journey of Jews and Christians coming together.
In this book Philip Cunningham traces the remarkable developments in Catholic-Jewish relations over the last fifty years. Centuries of antipathy and suspicion, Cunningham says, have largely given way to a new, mutually enriching relationship between the two traditions of Judaism and Catholicism.
A specialist in Christian-Jewish relations, Cunningham recounts the amazing, historic journey of Jews and Christians coming together in light of both Scripture and theology, covering the period from Vatican II up to the present day. After fifty years of significant dialogue, Cunningham suggests, Catholics and Jews are now on the threshold of building true shalom between their two communities, experiencing the Holy One anew in each other's distinctive and edifying ways of walking with God.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Philip Cunningham is the leading American Catholic scholar in the study of Christian-Jewish relations. In this book he charts ways forward and reasserts the importance of a partnership, a "chevruta," between Christians and Jews in their joint mission to seek peace, wholeness, and health between and among their faith communities. His "Seeking Shalom" will quickly become an essential text for anyone interested in understanding Christian-Jewish relations. I highly recommend it.

On the fiftieth anniversary of the VaticanII declaration "Nostra Aetate," Cunningham here provides a broad overview of where we are coming from and where the way of Christian-Jewish relations may lead. His work is theologically and ecumenically sensitive as well as solidly grounded in current biblical scholarship. ... A must-read for anyone interested in the present and future of Christian-Jewish dialogue.

Cunningham s "Seeking Shalom" is sound and comprehensive, innovative and concise, and easy to read. Theology at its best.

This masterful book lights our way in showing how a community can leave behind the inherited hatred, triumphalism, and disrespect that bring God s name into disrepute.
