Abrahambs Promise brings together for the first time Michael Wyschogrodbs shorter writings, including several important essays that have never been published before. One of todaybs truly indispensable religious voices, Wyschogrod has been heralded as the most significant Jewish theologian in a generation and admired for his singular contributions to Jewish-Christian relations. This reader aptly captures the broad scope of Wyschogrodbs work on Judaism and the Jewish-Christian encounter, collecting seminal essays, articles, and reviews that address such topics as the God of Abraham and the God of philosophy, sin and atonement, Judaism and the land, the Six Day War, Paul on Jews and Gentiles, and the theology of Karl Barth. An introductory essay by editor R. Kendall Soulen sets Wyschogrodbs career and writings in context. This important publication will have broad appeal to Jewish and Christian scholars concerned with theology, Jewish-Christian dialogue, and contemporary Jewish thought.
