Sicker attempts to deal with the awesome question, "Where was God at Auschwitz?" and with it some of the related central issues of Judaic thought and belief that have come under critical challenge. He argues that traditional non-dogmatic Judaic theology does not require radical revision but a sympathetic understanding of its assumptions and ideas and a desire to reformulate them in more modern terms.
