How can finite minds approach an infinite and ultimately unknowable God? Is it true that Christianity is a religion of love and Judaism a religion of law? How much do Jews and Orthodox Christians have in common when they worship God? What can be done about Christian prayers that Jews find offensive? How much responsibility do Christians carry for antisemitism? These and other fundamental questions are addressed by rabbi and professor Nicholas de Lange, academic researcher in Abrahamic religions Elena Narinskaya and writer and rabbi Sybil Sheridan; in conversation with Andrew Louth, professor and an archpriest of the Russian Orthodox Church.
