“Some years ago, the late Cardinal Avery Dulles, the most distinguished American Catholic theologian, told me he considered Matthew Levering ‘the most up and coming young Catholic theologian in the world.’ This new book shows us once again that Cardinal Dulles’s prediction was not exaggerated. This new book is a testament to Matthew Levering’s faith, his learning, his insightfulness, and his commitment to a theologically vibrant relationship with ‘ongoing Judaism.’ Well done!”
David Novak, University of Toronto
“This is systematic and biblical theology at its best, thought through in the company of some of the greatest modern Jewish thinkers. Levering manages to keep intact fulfillment without supersessionism, reverence and respect toward the Jewish people with a deeply confessional Catholic-ecumenical approach. Levering does this walking a daring tightrope addressing the most difficult topics that are unresolved between Jews and Catholics. A landmark book.
Gavin D’Costa, author of Catholic Doctrines on the Jewish People after Vatican II.
“In this deeply learned and religiously sensitive volume, the reader will enter a discussion like no other about the place of Israel within the domain of Christian theology. The place of Judaism within the theological work of the church will look different after working through these illuminating pages.”
Gary A. Anderson, University of Notre Dame
