Toward a Jewish Theology of Liberation

Marc H. Ellis, Author Orbis Books $9.94 (147p) ISBN 978-0-88344-358-3
Ellis, director of the Maryknoll Institute for Justice and Peace, presents religious essays by Elie Wiesel, Emil Fackenheim, Martin Buber and others about the effect of the Holocaust and the creation of the State of Israel on modern Jewish theology. Generally this collection is disappointing. With the exception of Wiesel's essay, the discussion of the ""crisis'' in America after the Holocaust is superficial. Ellis also generalizes about similarities among Jewish, Christian, Latin American, black and Asian liberation movements. He concludes by maintaining that dissenting voices in the Jewish community must be heard but fails to present enlightening indications about the future of Judaism. (April)
