The notion that the God of the Hebrew Bible and rabbinic literature, "the God of the Jews," is perfectly good is challenged by apparently immoral acts-by contemporary standards-of that God, as well as by the classic problem of evil.In this book, Jerome Gellman provides ways to question and overcome these challenges, addresses the faithful who are tested by these two problems, and aims to lighten the challenges for them while preserving God's perfect goodness. He recommends replacing a God of the Jews with a different God, a "Jewish God," one in whom many traditional Jews have come to believe. Gellman also offers the traditional believer a possible theodicy explaining much evil.The book is at once analytic in style and Hasidic in broad orientation.
