Stimulus Books are volumes co-sponsored by the Stimulus Foundation and Paulist Press that deal with topics of vital interest to the Jewish-Christian dialogue. This latest Stimulus Book, A Story of Shalom, is, in the words of the author, an "experiment." In it he takes the dawn of the millennium as an opportunity to retell the Christian story (the origins of the church, its purposes, its doings over the centuries and its goals for the future) in a way that envisions a positive relationship between the Christian and Jewish peoples.

He rejects the "old" story that saw Judaism as existing only to prepare for the coming of Christianity. Instead he tells the Christian story in a new way that promotes "Shalom" by affirming Judaism's covenant with God and the validity of Jewish self-understanding.

This gracefully written, thought-provoking book is:

--Perfect for groups involved in Jewish-Christian dialogue

--Enlightening for individual Jews and Christians interested in better mutual understanding

--Accessible to both a scholarly and non-scholarly audience 137889 Lawrence J. Cunningham, Philip A. Cunningham
