The People in the Room: Rabbies, Nuns, Pastors, Popes, and Presidents
Go behind the headlines and read the inside story told by “one who was in the room” as Christians and Jews—strangers and adversaries for nearly twenty centuries—reversed that sad history and created an extraordinary revolution of the human spirit. Told by a global interreligious leader, this authoritative book is the riveting personal account of the significant issues and major personalities he encountered in the vital effort to permanently change the relationship between two of the world’s major religious communities.
His belief in the goodness of humanity and undying faith that with interreligious dialogue we can find good in all religions, Rabbi James Rudin opens up to his life’s work, his journey into the soul of religion, spirituality, and life.
Rabbi Rudin takes us inside the Vatican, Camp David, churches, synagogues, and other stops across the globe, where he and so many others worked under the radar, tirelessly, for a lifetime, building rapport and bringing the religions together with interfaith dialogue. Rabbis, reverends, pastors, priests, nuns, popes, all working in tandem to make our world a better place.
