    One thought on “After Auschwitz: History, Theology, and Contemporary Judaism”

    1. This is a 1990's revision of a 1960's original. The update to the essays are uneven and sometimes come across as contradictory. The thrust of the original was to produce a Radical Theology in Judaism. Radical Theology was a Christian theological movement about how to be a Christian after the Nietzschian death of God. It is a theology informed by Nietzsche, Hegel, and Camus. In the 21st century, it seems dated. Especially with where current radical (with a small r) theology has gone in Judaism wi [...]

    2. A bit dense at times, this is nevertheless a powerful and commanding testament to the crisis of faith all thinking believers must undergo in the face of Hitler's legacy. The biggest disappointment is Rubenstein's inability to fully let go of his religion in spite of his honest analysis of the consequences. In this he shares similarities with Rudolf Otto.

    3. I have no idea how to rate this book. It's without question an important work of theology with some genuine nuggets of wisdom, but it's poorly organized and full of incomprehensible (largely Freudian) jargon. It's also repetitive and in some places did not age well, particularly in the final section on changing sexual values and homosexuality.

    4. A narrow view of Judaism and a narrow view of Christianity make for a narrow view of God. And a narrow view of God makes for either a non-existent God or a false God. This one isn't worth your time.

    5. Deep, thought provoking book tackling the discussion of belief and tradition in the aftermath of the Holocaust. A must read.
