"If handwringing and guilt are but sanitised forms of nihilism, indicative of loss (or, worse, an ambivalence) regarding Christian hope in resurrection of the material world, then Chris Boesel's book - a re-working of his doctoral thesis - may offer some timely and sensitive alternatives for a discipleship that is both humble and evangelical. His articulation of a solution is far from simple, but by its tone and execution Boesel does instil in the reader a sense of the vulnerability and grace required to witness to a gospel-constituted human community." Richard P Whaite, University of Notre Dame, IN, in Theological Book Review, Vol 23, No. 1, 2011 'Chris Boesel embarks upon a creative exploration of the theological and ethical underpinnings of Christian-Jewish dialogue ... [an] engaging style and conversational approach ... This book positively wrestles with some of the complexities spoken and unspoken ... a deep engagement with Barth, Ruether, Kierkegaard and other influential thinkers, this book re-examines some of the deep held theological assumptions behind understandings of the Christian faith'. THE EXPOSITORY TIMES, VOL. 123, NO. 4, JANUARY. "Chris Boesel's fairly recent book undertakes a renewed contemplation of Jewish and Christian relations, meriting a serious look at the two main culprits historically responsible for Christian imperialism: anti-Judaism and supersessionism. [ - ] This is a provocative - though perhaps, in the end, slightly traditional - claim to make, though it is one that certainly deserves its retelling in a contemporary context." C. Dickinson in: Louvain Journal of Theological and Canonical Studies, Vol. 88 (1), September 2012
