Enabling Dialogue about the Land

A Resource Book for Jews and Christians

Edited by Philip A. Cunningham, Ruth Langer, and Jesper Svartvik. Published by Paulist Press, 2020

This book is the fruit of several years of study by a team of Jewish and Christian scholars looking at the question of the Land. “While not intending to ‘solve’ the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Enabling Dialogue encourages interreligious conversation that moves away from endless disputes over policies toward engaging with differences as a path toward constructive understanding.”
