The Ten Commandments for Jews, Christians, and Others
Roger E. Van Harn
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, Aug 28, 2007 - Religion - 222 pages
Foreword by Peter W. Ochs
Afterword by Richard John Neuhaus
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."
