Where do we go from here? The editors invited George Lindbeck, one of the foremost Christian theologians devoted to fostering Jewish-Christian dialogue, to offer his response to this volume. Professor Lindbeck's insights, with which this epilogue begins, serve as the stimulus for our own thoughts about the promises and challenges of this new era of Jewish-Christian relations.
A Christian Response
In parts of this book, Christians display new attitudes toward Judaism. What is the future of these attitudes? Will they spread and endure, or will they weaken and perhaps disappear as guilt-inducing memories such as those of the Holocaust fade away? Isn't anti-Judaism part of Christianity's DNA, undetachable from what have historically been the major sources of its vitality and identity? These are questions that call for a Christian response.
