Measuring against previous eras, Jewish-Christian friendship is experiencing a renaissance. What what is the benefit of this friendship? Can Jews and Christians be spiritual allies? The conversation will be in two parts. One: Larry Behrendt will interview Anthony Le Donne about his new book, Near Christianity: How Journeys along Jewish-Christian Borders Saved my Faith in God. Le Donne will discuss how his Jewish friends and mentors enhanced his Christian faith. Two: They will discuss A Sacred Dissonance, a forthcoming book that they have co­authored focusing on how Jewish­-Christian similarity and diversity serve as a source of creative and spiritual energy for both Jew and Christian. The evening will conclude with questions and answers from the audience. Anthony Le Donne will be available to sign his book at the end of the session.
