Overview

This book takes up the challenge of providing a way to do Christian theology that is both sensitive to the questions arising in the Shoah and incorporates the advances of Jewish-Christian dialogue. Moore's approach also offers new thinking on the difficult texts of the Christian passion narratives as an example of the post-Shoah Christian theology. He expresses a hopeful outlook, that we are on the threshold of a new stage in theology and dialogue; a new generation of thinkers, both Jewish and Christian, are asking how we can move forward and apply the lessons learned from the events of the Shoah. Contents: Introduction: A New Christian Medrash; The Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of the Night; The Shape of Christian Response 21; Midrash as the Forum of Response; Approaching the Text; The Bystander; The Collaborator; Christianity and the Kingdom of the Night; Resurrection as Rescue; The Narrative of the Resurrection Appearances; Conclusion.

Author Biography: James F. Moore is Associate Professor of Theology at Valparaiso University.

Editorial Reviews

Theological Studies
Moore's work is refreshing and makes a single contribution to the conversation as to what constitutes responsible theology after the Shoah.
— Clark M. Williamson, NEW THEOLOGY REVIEW
John T. Pawlikowski
Professor Moore has offered us the 'seeds' for a major shift in the theological orientation of the Christian-Jewish theological discussion... I, for one, am very grateful he has undertaken this line of research and look forward to its further development.
Zev Garber
Moore's careful scholarship...is a welcome vision in an increasingly distorted worldview that celebrates racial strife and ethnic cleansing.
John T. Pawlinkowski
Professor Moore has written an extremely challenging and creative reinterpretation of basic Christian biblical texts and theological beliefs in light of the Shoah. Even those who may differ with his perspective on particular points will find themselves enriched and stimulated overall for having read it.
Joseph A. Edelheit
This book represents the very best of recent Christian theology.
Franklin H. Littell
...the book is accessible...for college undergraduates or seminars, a challenge to Paulinists, and helpful for preachers who struggle during Lent for a fresh approach.
G. David Schwartz
Moore develops an analysis which is insightful and compelling...[he] rescues meanings otherwise lost in the story of Jesus, and salvages possibilities for discussion otherwise lost in the Christian response to the Holocaust.

Moore's work is refreshing and makes a single contribution to the conversation as to what constitutes responsible theology after the Shoah.
