This volume presents a wide-ranging selection of Jewish theological responses to the Holocaust. It will be the most complete anthology of its sort, bringing together for the first time: (1) a large sample of ultra-orthodox writings, translated from the Hebrew and Yiddish; (2) a substantial selection of essays by Israeli authors, also translated from the Hebrew; (3) a broad sampling of works written in English by American and European authors. These diverse selections represent virtually every significant theological position that has been articulated by a Jewish thinker in response to the Holocaust. Included are rarely studied responses that were written while the Holocaust was happening.

Review quote

As close as it comes to an all-purpose anthology on Holocaust and post-Holocaust theology, Wrestling with God provides readings readings from across the full spectrum of Jewish religious thought. * Zachary Braiterman Journal of the American Academy of Religion * Wrestling with God provides an excellent introduction to the wide range of Jewish theological responses during and after the Holocaust, and its tripartite structure gives a representstive sample of writers, as well as a solid introduction to the distinctive preoccupations of ultra-Orthodox responses, Israeli responses and European / American responses...Highly recommended. * Isabel Wollaston, Journal of Jewish Studies *
