Synopsis

". . . For the Rabbi, argument with another person is the highest form of respect you can pay to him. So the Rabbi argues with Jesus because he respects him so much and he argues about what is important: the apparent conflict between the words of Jesus and the Torah".--Andrew M. Greeley. "By far the most important book for the Jewish-Christian dialogue to have been published in the last decade".--Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger.
