Walter Cardinal Kasper

Cardinal Walter Kasper
When on May 3, 2001 Pope John Paul II appointed Cardinal Walter Kasper as president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity — which includes the Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, he had selected a noted theologian and professor. The author of the highly regarded book, Jesus the Christ and former professor of dogmatic theology at the University of Tubingen, Cardinal Kasper brought his theological skills to the work of the Commission, as is evident in the important essays and addresses on Christian-Jewish Relations that are gathered below. He retired as President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity in 2010.
