‘Healing the Schism,’ with Dr. Jennifer Rosner

Dr. Jen Rosner joins Matt and Alastair to help Mere Fidelity listeners navigate the new Jewish-Christian encounter, as figured in her doctoral dissertation.

You may think that Christianity and Judaism have gone their separate ways; that they have nothing to do with each other. But this is not necessarily the case. On this episode, Dr. Jennifer Rosner, author of Healing the Schism: Karl Barth, Franz Rosenzweig, and the New Jewish-Christian Encounter, joins Matt and Alastair to talk about how Christianity and Judaism should relate to one another.

The Book of the Month is Ministers of Reconciliation: Preaching on Race and the Gospel. In this collection of essays, issues of race and ethnicity are explored from a variety of perspectives, offering guidance to pastors on how to address those topics in their own contexts. Each builds on a foundational passage of Scripture. With contributions from Matthew D. Kim, Dhati Lewis, J. D. Greear, and more, Ministers of Reconciliation offers practical and biblically faithful approaches to the subject of race. For the month of August 2021, Mere Fidelity listeners will get a 40% discount on their purchase of this volume with the code MEREFIDELITYAUG21 at checkout.
