Book Description

15 May 2007
The theological problems facing those trying to respond to the Holocaust remain monumental. Both Jewish and Christian post-Auschwitz religious thought must grapple with profound questions, from how God allowed it to happen to the nature of evil. "The Impact of the Holocaust on Jewish Theology" brings together a distinguished array of senior scholars - many of whose work is available here in English for the first time - to consider key topics ranging from the meaning of divine providence to questions of redemption to the link between the destruction of European Jewry and the creation of the State of Israel. Together, they push our thinking further about how our belief in God has changed in the wake of the Holocaust.

Product Description


"This is a serious book.... The scholars represented here wrestle with substantial issues." - Jewish Book World "An invaluable text. The individual essays are gems, written by recognized authorities in their respective disciplines, and they work as a seamless whole to address the fundamental issues raised by the Holocaust. The volume offers both a challenge and a stimulus for future thought.... Erudite and pathbreaking." - Alan L. Berger, Florida Atlantic University"
