Bound by the Bible: Jews, Christians and the Sacrifice of Isaac, by Edward Kessler. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2004. Pp. xii + 222. $75.00 (hardcover). ISBN 0521835429. In this volume, which is based on his doctoral dissertation, Edward Kessler of Cambridge Centre for Jewish-Christian Relations in the United Kingdom presents an investigation of Jewish-Christian relations during the "formative period," that is, the first six centuries of the first millennium of the common era, prior to the Muslim conquest of Palestine (635 C.E.). He attempts to demonstrate how the expounding of the Aqedah story (Gen 22:1-14) by Jews and Christians influenced each other in a compelling two-way encounter. Based on a study of this story, he examines whether there was some sort of exchange or interaction between Jews and Christians, and to what extent they are bound by the common Scripture, Hebrew Bible/OT.
