COMMON GROUND: A PRIEST AND A RABBI RE - 08 edition

COMMON GROUND: A PRIEST AND A RABBI RE (ISBN10: 0773534474; ISBN13: 9780773534476)
ISBN13: 978-0773534476
ISBN10: 0773534474

Summary: Judaism and Christianity meet in scripture, which they share and about which they contend. In Common Ground Father Andrew Greeley and Rabbi Jacob Neusner present their characteristically candid - and often provocative - interpretations of the history, context, and meaning of scripture. Written in alternating chapters, Common Ground reveals how a rabbi understands Christ, Mary, and St Paul, and how a priest views creation, Abraham and Sarah, and the prophets. Neusner calls upon the
ancient Rabbinic approach to scripture - the conversational dialogue of ''Midrash'' - while Greeley creatively renews the narrative tradition of Christianity.Together they show that differences in responses to scripture enrich the possibilities of biblical renewal.
