This is an excellent introduction, which states its intention to be for Jews about Christianity. But Rabbi Schoolman, who works in the field of interfaith dialogue, has written a book that is equally suited to introduce many Jews to Judaism, and many Christians, as well as non-Christians, to Christianity as well as Judaism. Its focus is on American Judaism and Christianity, but not exclusively. Topics include theological areas like Jesus, Messiah, end times, sin, and how the Bible is viewed, and inter-relational concerns like the state of Israel, various kinds of Christian churches, and religious influences on the U.S. government. It is balanced and basic, but interesting; the kind of introduction you can recommend with confidence. Bibliography, glossary, and suggested readings.
