4 reviews for A Dialogue of Life

  1. Melanie Carroll

    Such a beautiful, intelligent book that is a welcome read and not just for those that are interested in interfaith engagement between Christians and Jews…
    This book surely is a welcome addition to books on the interfaith and dialogue subject, however the dialogues and discussions taking part between the two authors here are so much deeper than just Jewish/Christian interfaith dialogue, so much more than a guide on how to dialogue with mutual respect and understanding, although they do that also and so well … The chapter on listening is amazing, and highlights why this book is so much more than just a book on dialogue! There is here a book on spirituality and engagement, on pastoral encounter and on theology too.
    An articulate and excellent book.

  2. Rabbi Burton L. Visotzky, Ph.D. Jewish Theological Seminary

    A Dialogue of Life is a book about interreligious dialogue between Jews and Christians, but it is so much more. Truly, it is a dialogue for life, full of wisdom and experience that benefits readers in every aspect of life. It is a book to be savored, like poetry. A book to be pondered, like philosophy. A book that guides us to the most difficult of all human endeavors: listening, truly listening to one another. Readers will rejoice in the gentle guidance of Silvina and Francisco — and be better humans for having experienced this book.

  3. Rabbi Jack Bemporad, St. Thomas Aquinas University

    What is unique in Silvina Chemen and Francisco Canzani’s book is that they succeed better than any other book known to me in dealing with the challenges and the opportunities of genuine interreligious dialogue. Both authors are extraordinarily sensitive and wise; they offer ways in which our two communities can work together and learn from one another, and find a common basis for dealing with the ethical and political issues of our day. This book provides great insight and hopefully, it will be used as a basis for study, discussion, and action in our interreligious communities.

  4. Roberto Catalano, Focolare Movement, Center for Interreligious Dialogue

    Beneath the ideas that are presented here with great competence, we can find a certainty: dialogue is possible today, between Christians and Jews or between anyone… and each of us could add that someone or something with whom it might seem impossible to dialogue with. The experience of the authors, the very origin of this book, allows us to state that it is possible to educate in the art of dialogue without losing our own identity. On the contrary, we will find it again more solid than what it was before.
