Neusner explains, "Two world religions emerged from antiquity. Each one in its way realized a universal vision of humanity in God's image, after God's likeness. Both spoke of a Messiah, a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. Both held as God's word the holy Scriptures of ancient Israel. They shared fundamental theological and ethical teachings... Everybody knows about Christianity. A great many people want to know more about the other, and for them, I wrote this book." Book jacket.
Drawing on forty years' experience as guest lecturer in the classrooms of Roman Catholic and Protestant colleges and seminaries around the world, Professor Neusner responds to the frequently asked questions he's received-and adds a few that he wishes people would ask.
Can someone ever stop being a Jew? How is suffering part of God's plan? When will the Messiah come? How is death overcome? Did rabbinic Judaism look down on, or subjugate, women? What kinds of actions does God really admire? Here, these and 200 other questions are ably answered by a respected Jewish scholar.
