About the Author

Martin Buber (1878-1965), is among the foremost twentieth-century philosophers of human relations and Jewish thought. He is best known for his revival of popular interest in Hasidism and his philosophy of dialogue, a form of existentialism centered on the distinction between the I-Thou and I-It relationships. His work on Hasidic thought, Zionism and religious philosophy continues to influence both the academic study of Judaism and religious thinking more broadly. He also inspired the trend toward neo-Hasidism among modern Jews. His books include I and Thou, Tales of the Hasidim, On Judaism and many others.


This is a great book. It is the sincere and reverent book of a Jew on Christ and the unique and decisive character of His message to Jew and Gentile. For Martin Buber, He is not only the greatest representative of the Jewish people and the greatest voice of Israel, but He occupies in the history of Israel a place which 'cannot be described by any of the usual categories.--The Tablet
Buber has delivered a series of shrewd and forceful blows against the Pauline version of Christianity. . . . In every chapter there is a wealth of insight which can force us beyond conventional platitudes.--R. Gregor Smith
