Join us for hors d’oeuvres and refreshments as we celebrate the launch of Murray Watson’s book - Restoring the Gospel’s Jewish Voice….
Although Chouraqui and his work are well-known and celebrated in many parts of the world (especially in Israel, and in the francophone world), he is almost completely unknown in the anglophone world. This book represents an attempt to introduce his important work and inspiring legacy to an English-speaking audience, and to explore how it can enrich Jewish-Christian dialogue today. As a bilingual translator and Biblical scholar, Watson makes Chouraqui's work accessible to English speakers who are unfamiliar with him—who may be intrigued by him but unable to directly access much of the material written by and about him in French.
Murray Watson is a Catholic Biblical scholar and interreligious activist. He currently serves as the adult faith formation Animator for the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board, based in the city of Barrie, Ontario (Canada).
