Abstract and Keywords

This article explores the Jewish-Christian dialogue regarding the doctrine of God. It examines two encounters that occurred during the patristic and medieval periods and two encounters that occurred in the past thirty years. It explains that while the former two encounters were hampered by Christian inability to articulate the doctrine of the Trinity, the latter two show signs of promise. This is part because both the Jewish and the Christian participants share a debt to Martin Buber, Franz Rosenzweig, and Abraham Heschel.

Keywords: Jewish-Christian dialogue, doctrine of God, Trinity, Martin Buber, Franz Rosenzweig, Abraham Heschel
