The Christian and the Pharisee: Lord Carey and David Rosen

Lord Carey
Rabbi David Rosen

The ninth commandment –Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour – features large in the dialogue between Rabbi David Rosen and evangelical Christian preacher RT Kendall in their exchange of letters,The Christian and the Pharisee. It cuts to the heart of all that divides the two religions, despite the shared moral heritage. Lord Carey, who wrote an introduction to the book, discussed these differences with David Rosen in a very special public encounter between two highly respected religious thinkers who strive at helping Jews and Christians understand each other better.

Lord Carey of Clifton is the former Archbishop of Canterbury

Rabbi David Rosen has dedicated his life to improving relations between the three religions. He founded the Inter- Faith Forum, the Council of Jews, Christians and Muslims. He is today Director of the Department of Inter-Religious Affairs in New York and was recently made a Papal Knight.
