A desire and demand to know more about the Jewish legacy of Christian identity is growing among laity. A similar desire to foster interfaith understanding and dialogue is growing among officials of local churches.
This new book seeks to meet these demands by providing information and insight about Judaish’s legacy as it is revealed in Christian rites, rituals, and traditions. It will introduce Christians in sacramental churches to ways Judaism has influenced the structure of liturgical worship and rituals; how church sanctuaries are designed and decorated; and baptism, Eucharist, and confirmation.
