Overview

The "Midrash Group" of the Scholar's Conference on the Holocaust and the Churches has met annually over the last decade to discuss ways for Christians and Jews to find meaning and direction in and from sacred texts after the Holocaust. Post Shoah Dialogues is a sample of four different dialogue sessions of the "Midrash Group." The idea for a Jewish-Christian dialogue on texts grew out of an ongoing conversation between the four scholars represented in this volume, due to the profound affect the Shoah had on the theological thinking of both groups. The essays, focusing on texts matched from Hebrew and Christian scriptures, allow Christians and Jews to read the texts together in such a way as to respect the authentic identity of each other, respect the deep questions arising from the Shoah, and to open avenues for more dialogue.
