Book Description

11 Oct 2001
This book offers the first comprehensive overview of Post-Holocaust Jewish theology, quoting extensively from and interpreting all of the significant American writings of the movement. Morgan's lucid analysis clarifies the background of the movement in the postwar period, its origins, its character, and its legacy for subsequent thinking, theological and otherwise. Among the authors whose work he considers are Hannah Arendt, Richard Rubenstein, Eliezer Berkowitz, Irving Greenberg, Arthur Cohen, Emil Fackenheim, Eli Wiesel and many others. Ultimately, Morgan's primary purpose is to tell the story of the movement, to illuminate its real, deep point, and to demonstrate its continuing relevance today.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thoughtful work on a most painful subject 1 April 2005
By Shalom Freedman - Published on
This work explores the literary, historical and primarily theological thought that came into being in post- war America in response to the Shoah. It makes in depth exploration of the work of a number of thinkers : Eliezer Berkovits, Irving ( Yitz)Greenberg, Emil Fackenheim, Richard Rubinstein. It also considers the writing of Elie Wiesel, Hannah Arendt on the Shoah. This is so far as I know the most significant work on this subject.

It is a work which in my opinion has answers which are themselves questions, about a subject which will always be bound up for any thinking person, and especially any Jew with tremendous pain and questioning.

Michael Morgan has done an outstanding job in editing and introducing the work.

I do have one objection. No work should be titled 'Beyond Auschwitz' There is no ' beyond ' Auschwitz. Auschwitz for those who were tortured and murdered there has no beyond. And for their survivors , and that is all of us, there is also no ' beyond'
