Many argue that in a post-Holocaust world, Christians must address their own culpability in the destruction of Europe's Jewry. If post-Holocaust Christians only lament Christianity's sin, which has been catastrophically destructive in its anti-Jewish manifestations, the tradition will be ultimately left with little to say and no credibility. Post-Holocaust Christians must emphasize positive differences that Christianity can make, including:
  • Repentant honesty about Christianity's anti-Jewish history
  • New appreciation for the Jewish origins of Christianity, the Jewish identity of Jesus, and the continuing vitality of the Jewish people and their tradition
  • Welcome liberation from liturgies and biblical interpretations that promote harmful Christian exclusivism
  • Deepened understanding that the core of Christian practice is to love—inclusively and hospitably—one's neighbors as oneself.
Informed by the best Holocaust scholarship and written in an accessible style, these essays show that God's embodied presence in the world provides life and hope that even the Holocaust cannot destroy.
