Priest and rabbi walk into a story



or our December 2010 session of ideaExchange, we invited Rabbi Neal Rose to join with Jamie Howison in a conversation around how the Jewish and Christian traditions have read and understood the story of Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son Isaac, as told in Genesis 22:1-19.

A conversation born of mutual respect and a twenty year collegial friendship, A priest and a rabbi walked into a story is both an exploration of a challenging biblical text and an illustration of how people from different traditions can engage in real dialogue.

A much respected educator, Rabbi Neal Rose often teaches in the Faculty of Theology of the University of Winnipeg, and  has played an important role in the formation and education of countless Christian theological students.
