Odds are good that you must be a brilliant, lucid, original thinker if your distinguished French peers have elected you a member of the French Academy. And all that is true of Aron Jean-Marie Lustiger, born Jewish, who read his way in 1940 into baptized Christianity at age 14, who was later appointed Bishop of Orleans, then Archbishop of Paris and Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church.

With such expectations I opened and read with high hopes the 2010 translation of two interviews and six addresses by Lustiger called ON CHRISTIANS AND JEWS. And the more often I return to this book, the higher grows my regard for it. It has eight chapters, composed between 1982 and 2003, covering Lustiger's evolving views on Christians and Jews (he died of cancer at age 80 in 2007).

In my opinion, Jean-Marie Lustiger is his nimble, profound, fearless best in chapters one and three: i. e., two oral interviews (1982, 1987) with a total of four hard-hitting interlocutors. They force Lustiger to be concrete and to the point, their point -- which is often biographical and painfully specific! In the six formal written addresses, by contrast, the Cardinal too often soars without being restrained into Plato's abstract "pure heaven of Ideas." I will in this review focus on Chapter eight to make my case. This was a 2003 address in New York to the World Jewish Congress. It is entitled: "Where Jews and Christians Work Together." It might more accurately be styled: "Six Selected Very General Areas where Jews and Christians must work together because they are now finally in a position to do so.

I really wanted to put it away after reading a few chapters. I have no respect for him. Born of Jewish parents who ended up dying in the ovens of Auchwitz - after he converted to Catholisicm at 14 years old. He converted while his parents were still alive and gave them much heartbreak. I wonder if he is proud of that! I, an educated Jew, found many things wrong with his interpretations. The first being misquoting the first two of the Ten Commandments. He speaks from two sides of his mouth. The interviewers were really good and he did not like some of the questions asked of him. He still uses his Jewish name Aron in front of Jean-Marie. What does that tell you? I did force myself to read about 70% of the book, but just could not go any further. I could write a book myself on all the incorrect information he puts forth. Jews do not believe in Jesus as the messiah - end of story! And yet he incorporates that even though Catholism comes from Judaism he feels that Jews should believe in the Christian Savior. My blood was boiling as I read this book. I do not recommend this book to Jews because your blood will boil, and I do not recommend this book to Chritians because you will get mixed and incorrect information. If I were you, I wouldn't spend money on it. I am sorry that I did. I do wonder if he knows that Catholicsm comes from Judaism, why didn't he stick to the original? I have great repect for my Catholic friends and they for me, and they certainly don't try to convert me, nor I they. We live very well together and respect each other's beliefs. We have great religious discussions and learn from each other. I have no respect for Aron Jean-Marie Justiger. As the book continues he is trying to convert people through his words. I think I've said enough. I become upset just writing this, and there is much more to be upset about in this book.
