Two noted Jewish rabbis explain what the Catholic Church is doing to rid itself and the world of anti-Semitism.

Our Age will help both Jewish and Catholic leaders immeasurably in efforts already undertaken together. It offers every responsible reader an opportunity for new insights into the extraordinary dynamic of reconciliation between and among brothers and sisters, children of the same Father.


The authors have produced a clear, easy-to-read examination of the new age in interreligious affairs ushered in ... with Vatican II and the Nostra Aetate proclamation, which acknowledged Christianitys Jewish roots, deplored anti-Semitism, and sought to build bridges between the two religions.

Library Journal

The authors in Our Age have thoroughly documented the Vatican's determination to root out anti-Semitism hook,line, and sinker from the teaching of the Catholic Church and to accord to the Jewish people and Judaism an essential role in the working out of Gods divine plan for humankind. Absolutely "must-read" for all who are seeking a reconciliation of substance.

In a world filled with so much divisiveness, hatred and genocide, Rabbis Bemporad and Shevack present a challenge and a vision that should not be ignored.
