Contemporary scholars in all disciplines have long recognized that the Shoah is a critical challenge to Christianity and Western civilization, as well as a watershed event in Jewish history. Steven L. Jacobs has completed two complementary works dealing with contemporary religious responses to the Shoah, one from the Christian perspective, the other from the Jewish perspective. This work focuses on the Jewish responses to the holocaust. Contents: Judaism and Christianity after Auschwitz, Steven L. Jacobs; In a World Without a Redeemer, Redeem!, Michael Berenbaum; Academia and the Holocaust, Alan L. Berger; After Auschwitz and the Palestinian Uprising, Marc H. Ellis; The Holocaust: A Summing Up after Two Decades of Reflection, Emil L. Fackenheim; Voluntary Covenant, Irving Greenberg; Auschwitz: Re-envisioning the Role of God, Peter J. Haas; Why?, Bernard Maza; Apocalyptic Rationality and the Shoah, Richard L. Rubenstein; Between the Fires, Arthur Waskow.
