This book, co-written with Aziz Abu Sarah and Rabbi Nancy Kreimer, is an informed and robust defense of compassion toward neighbors, strangers and even enemies. It aims to show that Judaism, Christianity and Islam have the resources to motivate respect and love for those of very different faith traditions.
