Two Types of Faith
A Study of the Interpenetration of Judaism and Christianity

Martin Buber

Paper $19.95s    |    0-8156-3034-4    |   2003

Martin Buber contrasts the "faith of Abraham" with the "faith of St. Paul" and ponders the possibilities of reconciliation between the two.

"This is a great book. It is the sincere and reverent book of a Jew on Christ and the unique and decisive character of His message to Jew and Gentile. For Martin Buber, He is not only the greatest representative of the Jewish people and the greatest voice of Israel, but He occupies in the history of Israel a place which 'cannot be described by any of the usual categories."
dashThe Tablet

"Buber has delivered a series of shrewd and forceful blows against the Pauline version of Christianity. . . . In every chapter there is a wealth of insight which can force us beyond conventional platitudes."
dashR. Gregor Smith, Theology

Martin Buber was a professor of social philosophy at Jerusalem University, where he wrote on social and ethical problems. He is best known for his religious philosophy, expounded most famously in Ich und Du (I and Thou).
