  • Pledges of Jewish Allegianceby David Ellenson; Daniel Gordis

    Stanford University Press 2012; US$ 30.00

    This book examines legal opinions from nineteenth- and twentieth-century Orthodox rabbis on what constitutes legitimate conversion to Judaism and argues that the array of disparate views indicates that these rabbis were not only answering a legal question, but crafting public policy for Jewish communities facing unprecedented changes in status, identity,... more...

  • Contemplative Nationby Cass Fisher

    Stanford University Press 2012; US$ 60.00

    Contemplative Nation repudiates the tendentious claim that theology is alien to Judaism with an account of Jewish theology that affirms the diverse forms and functions of Jewish theological language and that highlights the interdependence of reflection and practice in Judaism. more...

  • Holinessby Hannah K. Harrington

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 43.95

    In this in-depth exploration of holiness in the context of rabbinic Judaism, Hannah K. Harrington places the rabbinic concept of holiness alongside other notions of the sacred in the Graeco-Roman world. Holistic and yet detailed, this volume provides a much-needed comparative view of this subject during a key period in the development of the Jewish... more...

  • The Female Face of God in Auschwitzby Melissa Raphael

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 51.95

    The dominant theme of post-Holocaust Jewish theology has been that of the temporary hiddenness of God, interpreted either as a divine mystery or, more commonly, as God's deferral to human freedom. But traditional Judaic obligations of female presence, together with the traditional image of the Shekhinah as a figure of God's 'femaleness' accompanying... more...

  • God of Abrahamby Lenn Evan Goodman

    Oxford University Press 1996; US$ 154.99

    This cogently argued and richly illustrated book rejects the dichotomy between the God of Abraham and the God of the philosophers to argue that the two are one. In God of Abraham , one of our leading philosophers of religion shows how human values can illuminate our idea of God and how the monotheistic idea of God in turn illuminates our moral, social,... more...

  • Judaism, Human Rights, and Human Valuesby Lenn E. Goodman

    Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 134.99

    Following on the heels of his critically acclaimed God of Abraham (Oxford, 1996), Lenn E. Goodman here focuses on rights, their grounding in the deserts of beings, and the dignity of persons. In an incisive contemporary dialogue between reason and revelation, Goodman argues for ethical standards and public policies that respect human rights and support... more...

  • Searching for a Distant Godby Kenneth Seeskin

    Oxford University Press 2000; US$ 129.99

    Monotheism is usually considered Judaism's greatest contribution to world culture, but it is far from clear what monotheism is. This work examines the notion that monotheism is not so much a claim about the number of God as a claim about the nature of God. Seeskin argues that the idea of a God who is separate from his creation and unique is not just... more...

  • The Early History of Heavenby J. Edward

    Oxford University Press 2002; US$ 50.00

    How and why did Western cultures come to imagine the heavenly realm as they do? This volume traces the history of speculation about heaven and discovers that the Hebrew texts that fed Jewish and Christian notions were deeply influenced by images drawn from the surrounding cultures. more...

  • The Jews as a Chosen Peopleby S. Leyla Gurkan

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 54.95

    The concept of the Jews as a chosen people is a key element of the Jewish faith and identity. This book explores the idea of chosenness from the ancient world, through modernity and into the Post-Holocaust era. Analysing a vast corpus of biblical, ancient, rabbinic and modern Jewish literature, the author seeks to give a better understanding of... more...

  • After the Holocaustby C. Fred Alford

    Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 24.00
