Happy New Year! Best wishes to all for good health and happiness in 2016!
During this winter break, I recently added the new page, Online Resources for Jewish-Christian Relations, to the Research & Resources section of my website. The links listed here represent a cross section of resources that highlight various aspects of Jewish-Christian dialogue and/or relations. I will be adding to this list as we continue to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Jewish-Christian Studies Graduate Program through Fall 2016.
Here’s what’s new so far:
