This book gives a critical assessment of Paul van Buren's contribution to the Jewish-Christian dialogue, and attempts an original contribution of its own. The main body of the work is concerned with van Buren's 'A Theology of the Jewish-Christian Reality', a systematic rethinking of Christianity vis-a-vis Judaism in a Post-Holocaust world. The premise on which van Buren's rethinking of Christianity rests is that the covenant between God and the Jewish people is eternal. The author suggests an alternative theory which overlaps with the relationship between Judaism and Christianity.
