  • Review 1: "Moore’s book is a tour de force of scholarship. She distills an immense amount of historical, theological, and philosophical research into a new, lucid, and challenging history of Jewish-Christian relations that not only provides a blueprint for ending antisemitism, but also for ending the religious animosities inflaming the world today." Allison P. Coudert holds the Paul A. and Marie Castelfranco Chair in the History of Christianity in the Department of Religious Studies at UC Davis.

Rebecca Moore (Author)

Rebecca Moore has a Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Marquette University (1996), where her specialty was Jewish and Christian dialogue. She served as Chair and Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies at San Diego State University, where she was also Interim Chair of Classics and Humanities; she also taught Religious Studies at the University of North Dakota, Saint Norbert College, and other institutions. She has written and published on medieval Christian theologians and their debt to Jewish biblical commentary, most notably Jews and Christians in the Life and Thought of Hugh of St. Victor (Scholars Press 1998). She co-authored A Portable God: The Origin of Judaism and Christianity (Rowman and Littlefield 2007) with SDSU colleague Risa Levitt Kohn.

A popular lecturer, Dr. Moore has given presentations on a range of interreligious topics—from polemics to the Bible to the Shoah and many more.
