I know, you've been waiting for this! I am delighted to announce the release of my long-awaited study on Eliezer Berkovits' theology of the Holocaust. Over the last decade, I published two previous major essays on Berkovits' thought, one on his view of morality and Jewish law, the second on his Zionist thought. (Both of these came out with Azure, the now-defunct journal of public affairs that I joyfully edited for many years.) I really do believe that he was one of the most important, and underrated, Jewish philosophers of the twentieth century, and have dedicated much of my scholarly work to showing this.
In this third and final work, I suggest that Berkovits, and only Berkovits, successfully combined a deep respect for the painful theological questions that arise from Auschwitz with a respect for the traditional Jewish approach to history -- and that these hold an important place in our understanding of evil, of man's role in the world, and of biblical religion as a whole.
Right now, the work is available exclusively through Amazon.com as a digital edition. I do intend in the future to make this, and the other two essays, available both digitally and in print.
Enjoy it, and if you like what you read, feel free to put up a nice review!
