This book is the first of its kind to specifically look at Jewish-Christian women in dialogue together on a range of issues other than the feminist one. Each chapter begins with an introduction to the subject, consists of two voices engaging in discussion, and ends with a thorough list of further reading to point the interested reader in the right direction to find out more. It looks at the impact of the dialogue on these women's spiritual journeys, and also looks at key critical issues such as the impact of the Holocaust on the women's faith and theology: the figure of the Messiah in both traditions -touching on the wider christological issues which separate the two faiths. The way the text is read is examined and, finally, the book looks to the future and asks what the key concerns and issues wil be for them and the next generation of Jewish and Christian women.

"I found the whole approach most enlightening, their frankness and openness giving new insight into familiar themes and confronting me with new ones such as the rape of Dinah! (Genesis 34). (...)There is so much in this book for people of both gender and of both faiths. (...) this book is by women but not just for women - it will help us all to a deeper understanding of Jewish-Christian dialogue." Rev Ray Trudgian, METHODIST RECORDER, 26 May 2005.
"What makes this such a superb collection of perspectives is not just its quality - which is as high as one might wish for - but the honesty and openness of the dialogue itself". CHURCH TIMES, 26 August 2005.

"There is a real sense in the written text of their hearing and responding to the points made by the others and not, as so often is the case in essays on similar subjects, just sittting side by side." Peggy Morgan, Mansfield College, Oxford, Interreligious Insight, Volume 4, no.2, April 2004.
