Idolatry and Representation:
The Philosophy of Franz Rosenzweig Reconsidered
Leora Batnitzky

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"For a postliberal Christian theologian, reading Batnitzky on Rosenzweig is an unalloyed joy. He is, in her interpretation, the kind of Jewish conversation partner Christians need--a partner who is both more critical of Christianity and also Jewishly self-critical than has been previously supposed. The book contributes greatly to a welcome turn in Jewish-Christian dialogue which is now in progress."--George Lindbeck, Yale University

"Leora Batnitzky is one of the up-and-coming stars in contemporary Jewish philosophy and the philosophy of religion, and this book shows why. The book displays careful, comprehensive scholarship in modern and contemporary Jewish, Christian, and general theology and philosophy. It is a creative, constructive project that displays for our use previously under-seen patterns of hermeneutical and ethical thinking in one of the greatest twentieth-century Jewish figures. It is an urgent book that addresses with academic rigor issues of significant ethical-philosophic import on the border between academe and broader social life."--Peter Ochs, University of Virginia
