Item description for A Shadow of Glory: Reading the New Testament After the Holocaust by Tod Linafelt...
bbWhat role might the New Testament have played in the cultural history of anti-Semitism that culminated in the Holocaust? And how has the Holocaust in turn affected the way we read-or should read-the founding text of Christianity? Although the philosophical, ethical, and theological implications of the Holocaust have received much attention in recent years, its implications for our practices of biblical interpretation have gone largely unexplored. In A Shadow of Glory some of the most prominent contemporary scholars in biblical studies and Jewish studies-both Christian and Jewish, American and European-lay the groundwork for a new post-Holocaust hermeneutics.
