This concluding chapter links some of the issues raised in the book's chapters to the writings that have been central to theologians engaged in the same enterprise. It firsts examine some of the most explicit statements Levinas made about the post-Nostra Aetate relationship between Christianity and Judaism, followed by echoes of his work in two prominent Christian theologians, the writings of Pope John Paul II and Johann Baptist Metz, as well as two outstanding Jewish theologians, Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel. It demonstrates that there is a mutual attraction between the thought of Levinas and the theologians who have engaged in the renewed relationship between Jews and Christians after the Second Vatican Council.

Keywords:   Emmanuel Levinas, Christianity, Judaism, Jews, Christians, Nostra Aetate, Pope John Paul II, Johann Baptist Metz, Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
