This insightful book seeks to address the meaning of Shoah and its effect on the meaning of life in a post-Holocaust world. With a methodological, pedagogical, and theological thrust, the author's objective is to preserve and present the Shoah as living history for Christians and Jews in an age of ethnic cleansing and Godforsakeness.

Pawlikowski, OSM, Ph.D., Catholic Theological Union Jewish News of Los Angeles ...an illuminating and powerfully presented book in which Jewish and Christian readers are invited to reflect on the Shoah as a living history...Drawing theological insights from the Jewish Bible, the Second Testament, and other Jewish sources, the book is a valuable addition to ecumenical and dialogical reading. It is not only academically sound, but it also provides the heart to feel deeply for the millions of innocent victims and their surviving relatives. -- Rev. John T. Pawlikowski, OSM, Ph.D., Catholic Theological Union Journal of Ecumenical Studies In sum, Garber's essays constitute a powerful appeal, not only to Jews to consider their identity in light of the Shoah, but to Christians to reconsider their identity in relation to Jews and Judaism: important as the Shoah is to Jewish thought and experience, it constitutes a fundamental challenge to Christian theology and self-identity to confront its role in the Shoah, and to accept Jews and Judaism as equals. -- Rev. John T. Pawlikowski, OSM, Ph.D., Catholic Theological Union Holocaust and Genocide Studies Fascinating essays explore the Holocaust as a historical event and a theological watershed. The impassioned argument Garber makes for a unique theory and methodology in the academic treatment of the Holocaust is forceful and compelling. -- Rev. John T. Pawlikowski, OSM, Ph.D., Catholic Theological Union Religious Studies Review ...this is a book of substance on the Holocaust that will certainly stimulate some important questions and add important perspective towards the formulation of adequate responses. -- Rev. John T. Pawlikowski, OSM, Ph.D., Catholic Theological Union Religion
