Reviewing the covenant : Eugene B. Borowitz and the postmodern renewal of Jewish theology by Peter Ochs( )

16 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2,259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Reviewing the Covenant, six Jewish philosophers - and one Christian colleague - respond to the work of the renowned Jewish theologian Eugene B. Borowitz, one of the leading figures in the movement of "postmodern" Jewish philosophy and theology. The title recalls Borowitz's earlier book, Renewing the Covenant: A Theology for the Postmodern Jew, in which he lent this movement a theological agenda, and the essays in this book respond to Borowitz's call: to revitalize contemporary Judaism by renewing the covenant that binds modern Jews to re-live and re-interpret the traditions of Judaism's past."--Jacket

Movies and Midrash : popular film and Jewish religious conversation by Wendy Zierler( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Movies and Midrash uses cinema as a springboard to discuss central Jewish texts and beliefs. Wendy I. Zierler explores what Jewish tradition, text, and theology have to say about the lessons and themes arising from influential and compelling films. The book uses the method of "inverted midrash": while classical rabbinical midrash begins with exegesis of a verse and then introduces a mashal (parable) as a means of further explication, Zierler turns that process around, beginning with the culturally familiar cinematic parable and then analyzing related Jewish texts. Each chapter connects a secular film to a different central theme in classical Jewish sources or modern Jewish thought. Films covered include The Truman Show (truth), Memento (memory), Crimes and Misdemeanors (sin), Magnolia (confession and redemption), The Descendants (birthright), Forrest Gump (cleverness and simplicity), and The Hunger Games (creation of humanity in God's image), among others"--
