This book is a consideration of major contemporary African American and Jewish theological understandings of God, human nature, moral evil, suffering, and ethics, utilizing the work of James Cone and Emil Fackenheim.  Specifically, it examines how profound faith in a just God is sustained, and even strengthened, in the face of particularly horrific and long-standing evil and suffering in a community.  The constructive portion of the book explores theological possibilities by focusing on the concepts of human freedom, resistance, and responsibility--all grounded in divine gift--as an effective and meaningful response to oppression and despair.

About the Author:

Kurt Buhring is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Saint Mary’s College.  His areas of scholarly and teaching interest include contemporary theology, interreligious dialogue, and religion and science. 

Review:

“This book is a significant, in-depth study of James Cone and Emil Fackenheim, two brilliant thinkers of our time, on the issue of suffering, moral evil, and theodicy. Buhring has written insightfully on African American and Jewish responses to racism and the Holocaust.”-- Harold Kasimow, George Drake Professor of Religious Studies, Grinnell College
