   schema:reviewBody ""Dominic Rubin's Russia, Sacred Israel is a formidable and profoundly impressive piece of research, which needed to be done, and I was very glad to see it. It is a major piece of work. Most Revd. Dr. Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury" "Holy Russia, Sacred Israel is without a doubt a very important book and contribution to the field. With a deep and sympathetic understanding for both Judaism and Russian Orthodoxy, Dominic Rubin gives us new readings of some of the canonical figures of Russian thought: Soloviev, Florensky, Rozanov, Gershenzon, Karsavin, and Fedotov, among others. This is an important book for Russian culture because the author has no axe to grind and is unafraid of telling truth to power, facing both past anti-Jewish agitation and propaganda, while at the same time never surrendering hope for a future Russian-Jewish philosophical dialogue. Each figure is judged primarily on the merits of their thinking as theology and as humane expression, in a way which displays erudition, tolerance and a love for both Russian and Jewish culture. Brian Horowitz, Professor of Russian and Chair of Jewish Studies, Tulane University" "This is a truly exceptional book. I have reread chapters time and again. In these pages, there are so many things of immediate interest, mainly, I think, for Orthodox theologians and Church leaders. The presentation and commentary on landmark figures like Soloviev, Bulgakov, Berdyaev and Florensky will be of great benefit in helping Orthodox Christians in the twenty first century understand in depth the past relationship between Christianity and Judaism in the Orthodox context, during a period that was of crucial importance for both faiths. Very few people are aware of the details of this relationship, and this book is invaluable in assessing how today's Orthodox Christians can learn from this past. Fr. Vasile Mihoc, Professor of New Testament Studies, Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu, Romania" "Holy Russia, Sacred Israel examines how Russian religious thinkers, both Jewish and Christian, conceived of Judaism, Jewry and the Òld Testament' philosophically, theologically and personally at a time when the Messianic element in Russian consciousness was being stimulated by events ranging from the pogroms of the 1880s, through two Revolutions and World Wars, to exile in Western Europe." "An attempt is made to locate the boundaries between the Jewish and Christian, Russian and Western, Gnosticpagan and Orthodox elements in Russian thought in this period. The author reflects personally on how the heritage of these thinkers-little analyzed or translated in the West-can help Orthodox (and other) Christians respond to Judaism (including M̀essianic Judaism'), Zionism, and Christian anti-Semitism today."--BOOK JACKET." ;
