"In this important book, Matthew Levering makes an all too unusual type of contribution to the relationship between Jews and Christians: he offers a sustained theological engagement with one of the outstanding Jewish thinkers of our time. Levering makes no attempt to minimize the matters over which Jews and Christians are bound to differ. Yet he shows how much Christians can learn from a Jewish theologian and philosopher like David Novak - and how much everyone has to gain from treating the relationship between the Church and the Jewish people as above all a theological question, and not only a moral and political problem." - Bruce Marshall, Professor of Historical Theology, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, USA
