Abstract:

This book is divided into three parts. The first, consisting of a single brief essay, deals with the tension created by revelation in the secular world. Part two, "The Commanding Voice of Auschwitz," develops the thought that we are forbidden to grant Hitler posthumous victories. A series of essays takes up the implications of the Holocaust for Jewish faith and life, as well as the ethical challenges, successes, and failures for both Jews and non-Jews. The final section of the book leads the reader from the events of the Holocaust to the founding of modern Israel. It shows the deep connection, in history and in faith, of these two events. A continuity of thought and theme runs through these essays, written over the last decade, that offers moving insights into our unparalleled period of Jewish history. --from inside jacket.
