The Impact of the Holocaust on Jewish Theology Summary


The Impact of the Holocaust on Jewish Theology by Edited by Steven T. Katz

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 international array of senior scholars-many of whose work is available here in English for the first time-to consider key topics from the meaning of divine providence to questions of redemption to the link between the Holocaust 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.
Contributors: Yosef Achituv, Yehoyada Amir, Ester Farbstein, Gershon Greenberg, Warren Zev Harvey, Tova Ilan, Shmuel Jakobovits, Dan Michman, David Novak, Shalom Ratzabi, Michael Rosenak, Shalom Rosenberg, Eliezer Schweid, and Joseph A. Turner.

The Impact of the Holocaust on Jewish Theology Reviews


"It is essential reading for advanced students and scholars who perhaps think that they possess anything near an understanding of the impact of the tremendum that is Holocaust." * Choice: Recommended *
"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 as a challenge and a stimulus for future thought. . . . Erudite and pathbreaking." -- Alan L. Berger,Raddock Eminent Scholar Chair of Holocaust Studies, Florida Atlantic University
"This is a serious book. . . .The scholars represented here wrestle with substantial issues." * Jewish Book World *
