I appreciate this book greatly: ideas that i had run into tangentially, concerns that i had felt but inarticulately, new exegesis of both Christian and Hebrew Scriptures [I disagree with her criticism of that title]-- all this was made coherent and understandable in a new way. The book is scholarly in that EVERYthing said is supported and defended in a most rational way. Unfortunately, like so many books written since the advent of word-procssing and the loss of experienced editors in publishing houses, the book is sometimes repetitive and occasionally borders on the hystrionic.
Even so, Levine's ability as a Jew to value the Christian faith and the positives of this religion, and her challenge to Jews to break out of their institutionalized ignorance of the majority culture, is remarkable and edifying. This should be a must-read for all Christian pastors and on the shelf of all rabbis' offices.
