Christians, Jews and Muslims



Cameron Sawyer writes: "On particular sects of Christianity and their relations with Jews, the story of the decade about Jewish-Christian reconciliation is John Paul II -- see Darcy O Brien, The Hidden Pope: The Untold Story of a Lifelong Friendship That Is Changing the Relationship Between Catholics and Jews, and the touching and uncharacteristically effusive words about the Pope and relations with Catholics from the usually petulant Anti-Defamation League (
www.adl.org; which even published a book of the Pope s writings!). I believe that Lutherans have also made great stride; coincidentally there are warm words from the ADL on their site: http://www.adl.org/presrele/ChJew_31/2410_31.asp. Would that there might be even a tiny glimmer of such understanding with Islam" ["Petulant" is a mild word for the ADL. RH].
