Toward a Jewish theology of liberation by Marc H Ellis( Book )
50 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,072 libraries worldwide
"Turmoil still grips the Middle East and fear now paralyzes post-9/11 America. The comforts and challenges of this book are thus as timely as when first published in 1987. With new reflections on the future of Judaism and Israel, Ellis underscores the enduring problem of justice. The use of liberation theology to make connections between the Holocaust and contemporary communities from the Third World reminds both Jews and oppressed Christians that they share a common ground in the experiences of abandonment, suffering, and death. The connections also reveal that Jews and Christians share a common cause in the battle against idolatry - represented now by obsessions for personal affluence, national security, and ethnic survival. According to Ellis, Jews and Christians must never allow the reality of anti-Semitism to become an excuse to evade solidarity with the oppressed peoples - be they African, Asian, Latin American or, especially, Palestinian."--Jacket

Unholy alliance : religion and atrocity in our time by Marc H Ellis( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 521 libraries worldwide
"In this searing work Marc Ellis asks whether Christianity and Judaism are irredeemably scarred by tragic violence, vengeance, repression, and war. Or can genuine, life-giving elements in these traditions renew them and halt the cycle of violence? Is there God beyond violence?" "Ellis's personal quest for religious integrity in face of evil leads him to probe religious dimensions of both historical and contemporary eruptions of barbarism, to assess the work of prominent reformist theologians, and finally to examine what, in all honesty, we can still affirm about God."--Jacket

O, Jerusalem! : the contested future of the Jewish covenant by Marc H Ellis( Book )
6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 265 libraries worldwide
"Ellis sees a "struggle for the heart and soul of the Jewish people," which he locates in the covenant, symbolized by Jerusalem. Raising profound questions for both Jews and Christians, his book offers a renewed theology of the covenant and urges authentic embrace of its justice dimensions, its present "exile," and its future in revolutionary forgiveness."--Jacket
Judaism does not equal Israel by Marc H Ellis( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 232 libraries worldwide
In December 2008, Israel's attack on Gaza provoked international condemnation. The killing of civilians anguished even many supporters of Israel, who found it morally indefensible. In this volume, Jewish thinker and critic Marc H. Ellis takes on the hard moral questions about Jewish support for the state of Israel. Reviewing the historical record of the past fifty years and envisioning the prospects for a just and lasting peace, Ellis makes a case--based on central prophetic Jewish values--that the present policies of the Israeli state cannot reasonably be defended. --From publisher's description

Encountering the Jewish future : with Elie Wiesel, Martin Buber, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Hannah Arendt, Emmanuel Levinas by Marc H Ellis( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 159 libraries worldwide
"Marc Ellis maintains that the most vital questions about Judaism are prefigured in the work of Elie Wiesel, Martin Buber, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Hannah Arendt, and Emmanuel Levinas. Ellis's work is framed by encounters with each thinker's work, focusing on topics of God, the Holocaust, the prophetic legacy, philosophical and ethical standpoints, and Jewish empowerment and dissent. Two generations after the Holocaust and Israel's founding, Ellis argues that the uncertain future of Judaism requires a deeply personal and intellectual exploration of Jewish tradition and identity, in conversation with the best philosophical and theological minds of recent years"--Publisher description
Reading the Torah out loud : a journey of lament and hope by Marc H Ellis( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 142 libraries worldwide
What religious values and ultimate vision would you wish to pass along to your children? How does one sort through what is authentic and inauthentic in a religious tradition today and forge its future? These are the questions Marc Ellis attempts to answer in this personal yet programmatic work. Ellis reflects on the encounters that have been decisive in his own religious realms: the personal and the political. His work is a meditation on what can be learned and retained from his encounters with the Catholic Worker movement, post-Holocaust theology, Latin America Liberation Theology, engagement with the Palestinian cause, and acknowledgment of Israeli violence

The renewal of Palestine in the Jewish imagination by Marc H Ellis( Book )
4 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
"Beyond the immediate issues of politics and economics lie the larger and deeper realities of history and fidelity. As a Jew I am asking in these essays traditional religious questions in light of our present circumstances: What does it mean to be Jewish after the Holocaust and the consolidation of our empowerment in Israel/Palestine? Coming from a situation of oppression, what does it mean for Jewish history and theology to continue oppressing the Palestinian people? Has our empowerment in Israel brought us the freedom we so urgently needed, or has our abuse of power in Israel brought us a new enslavement and ghettoization which we did not seek, but now pursue almost blindly? Can we be healed of our trauma of Holocaust by finalizing the trauma of the Palestinian people which we as Jews have inflicted? At the lighting of the Shabbat candles, shall we bless our endeavor and thank God for making us into a warrior people?"--
