This chapter addresses the question: how far can Jews and Christians go in affirming the faith of the other? It presents a reassessment of Christianity by modern Jewish theologians: Franz Rosenzweig, Martin Buber, and Abraham Joshua Heschel. It then presents a reassessment of Judaism by three modern Christian theologians: Paul van Buren, A. Roy Echardt, and Clark M. Williamson. It argues that the dialogue does not and should not ask either faith tradition to give up any of its positive doctrines. What each must be willing to do is to reevaluate negative convictions. In altering the views of the other Judaism and Christianity should be recognised as having crucial roles to play in sacred history.

Keywords:   Judaism, Christianity, theologians, Franz Rosenzweig, Martin Buber, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Paul van Buren, A. Roy Echardt, Clark M. Williamson
