The Promise

Book - 2007
Rate this:
Because of their faith in the crucified Messiah, the Christian nations are indebted to Israel. Yet they have largely marginalized and even rejected God's chosen people. In this volume Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger reflects on a number of subjects and concerns common to both Christians and Jews -- the Ten Commandments, fulfillment of biblical prophecy, Christian anti-Semitism, and more.

As a Jewish-born Roman Catholic priest, Cardinal Lustiger has a unique viewpoint. He became Archbishop of Paris and a cardinal while remaining keenly aware of his indelible Jewish identity and of the vital Jewish roots of Christianity. Aware that his reflections may be controversial -- possibly offending Jewish and Christian readers alike -- he nonetheless boldly shares his perspectives in  The Promise , hoping that readers will see him as speaking and writing in good faith, in the service of the Word of God given for the happiness and salvation of all.
