Description

Relying on the core, messianic affinity that binds Christianity and Judaism together, Zathureczky offers a reconstruction of the Christian doctrine of the Trinity through the messianic lens provided by the thought of Walter Benjamin. The work traces the contours of a Trinitarianism which does not stand aloof of an unredeemed world, a Trinitarian naming of God that transpires within the time of messianic remembrance.show more

Review quote

Zathureczky's reflections on the Trinity in light of the Messianic address the kinds of issues that are often overlooked not only in religious studies and theology but also in studies of epistemology. His analysis, based on readings of Walter Benjamin andJurgen Moltmann, of how understandings of the world and God emerge out of tensions and from positions of the marginal is a significant contribution to cutting edge developments in contemporary scholarship... -- Joerg Rieger, Perkins School of Theology, SMU; author of Christ And Empire Creatively juxtaposing the thought of Walter Benjamin and Jurgen Moltmann, Zathureczky's commendable study explores prospects for a post-Holocaust Christian theology that subjects discourse about the Trinitarian God to messianic perspectives shared with Judaism. The result not only enriches Trinitarian thinking by connecting it more closely with historical remembrance and suffering, but also opens up new avenues for Jewish-Christian dialogue. I heartily recommend this book. -- Thomas E. Reynolds, Emmanuel College This book hammers home a fresh, energetic account of the challenge of the Holocaust for contemporary Christian theology. It is essential reading, deserving of vigilant reading and weighty response. -- William J.
