Evangelical Interpretation after Auschwitz: Planting Seeds for Responsible Deeds

$25.00

Evangelical Interpretation after Auschwitz: Planting Seeds for Responsible Deeds challenges Bible interpreters to apply a biblical ethic of social responsibility by hearing the questions of Holocaust survivors when considering the meaning and application of Scripture. Using marginal notes in study Bibles as a focus for better interfaith conversations, it seeks to bridge evangelical teachings on biblical interpretation and social responsibility with insights from Jewish-Christian dialogue since the Holocaust. With hope for a better future, it urges evangelicals to:

  • Rethink historical memories,
  • Honor the Jewish roots of Christian faith,
  • Shun anti-Jewish defamations,
  • Challenge racism,
  • Strategize post-Holocaust biblical applications, and
  • Partner with Jews in hallowing history.
