Chapter Summary

One of the most remarkable cultural developments over the past half-century has been the growth of inter-religious dialogue. Inter-religious dialogue, needless to say, is not without inner tensions. The most important of these concerns the very goal of the enterprise. Consider as an illustration one of the similar lessons that Dabru Emet thinks Jews and Christians derive from their common Bible: God established a covenant with the people Israel. That covenant is first announced to Abraham in Genesis 15, following a report that the childless future patriarch trusted in Gods unlikely promise to grant him innumerable progeny. The dispute between Christianity and Judaism in antiquity could take place only because the two communities worked from common scriptures that reported that God established a covenant with the people Israel, in the words of Dabru Emet.
