A Midrashic Experiment
Foreword by Zev Garber
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
Henry F. Knight is Director of the Council for Holocaust Education in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is the author of Celebrating Holy Week in a Post-Holocaust World (2005) and co-editor with Marcia Sachs Littell of The Uses and Abuses of Knowledge (1997).
"It is the genius of Henry Knight's discussion that he not only addresses the critical post-shoah questions for believing Christians: he expounds a method of approach that keeps the dialogue open."
--Franklin H. Littell, Distinguished Professor of Holocaust Studies at Richard Stockton College of New Jersey
"What a marvelous book! Here is a Christian Midrash, full of humane scholarship, driven by Christian and Jewish learning, sustained throughout by profound dialogue. Knight has dared to apply the Holocaust rigorously as a reorienting event for theology. He boldly reorients Christian thinking, reimagines Jesus' role and God's, while remaining deeply faithful to the distinctive power of the Christian and the Jewish traditions. Amazingly, in doing all this, he has harnessed the searing fire of the Shoah, turning it into a sun of righteousness, bringing healing."
--Rabbi Irving Greenberg, President of Jewish Life Network
