By A. Roy Eckardt

Lecture I: Faith Under the Judgment of History

I am deeply appreciative of being allowed a place in the Hugh Th. Miler Lecture series. I should like to dedicate my presentations to the memory of a dear friend, Heinz David Leuner of Breslau and London.

It is now thirty-five years since I started to think about the Christian-Jewish relation. That may be a foolhardy announcement, in view of the limitations in what I have to say. the truth is that I can be of no primary aid in the historical and biblical areas; I may be of some help from ideational and moral standpoints.

In addressing ourselves to theological-frontier questions for Christians
