Reading Auschwitz with Barth
The Holocaust as Problem and Promise for Barthian Theology
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Will Lindsay dare to write so openly about Barth's theology as it stands before this icon of Jewish suffering and Jewish death? . . . Well, I shall say, read Mark Lindsay's book! Because neither Christian nor Jew in this century can avoid confronting the challenges of Auschwitz. And because Barth's return to Scripture, 'old' and 'new,' includes a return to the Jews."
--Peter Ochs, Bronfman Professor of Modern Judaic Studies, University of Virginia
"Mark Lindsay is an internationally recognized expert on Karl Barth's attitude toward the Jews. . . . He shows not only that Barth is a fruitful dialogue partner for post-Holocaust theology, but also that he offers profound theological resources for coming to terms with the Holocaust itself. . . . Lindsay is right that Barth failed to confront the Holocaust directly. This is essentially the book that Barth himself should have written."
--George Hunsinger, McCord Professor of Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary
