Masterplots II by John K Roth( )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Masterplots II: Christian Literature compiles summary-analyses of 502 titles. Of these, 45 have been updated from previous Salem publications. The remainder, 457 essays, are completely new, written for this publication. Masterplots II: Christian Literature captures the entire breadth of Christian literature--both fiction and nonfiction--by selecting more than 500 of the greatest and most representative works identified with the genre. At the core of this list are the fiction and nonfiction "classics" to which most students and general readers--Christian or secular--will be exposed at some time in their lives, from Saint Augustine's Confessions to John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress to Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series, and C.S. Lewis's Screwtape Letters and Narnia chronicles. While several of the titles were not written exclusively for a Christian audience, all works covered in these volumes have been consulted, examined, taught, or analyzed from a Christian perspective. Many of the titles in our list, however, overtly emphasize the Christian experience, and in many cases, these works were written expressly for the purpose of addressing Christian concerns or simply providing a good "Christian read." The scope is broad not only generically but also temporally and geographically, with works by authors as diverse as John Samuel Mbiti, Gustavo Gutǐrrez, Immacuľe Ilibagiza, J.N.K. Mugambi, and Fumitaka Matsuoka and dates of publication ranging from Christian times to the twenty-first century. Titles in all the major genres are included: drama, from Everyman to Jesus Christ Superstar; poetry, from "The Dream of the Rood" to Mark Jarman's Questions for Ecclesiastes and Scott Cairns's Philokalia; and representative titles from the best writers of Christian genre fiction, including romance, mystery, end-times, and science fiction. We have not avoided contemporary and often controversial blockbusters such as Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code and Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins's Left Behind series; their best-seller status testifies to the continuing and growing interest in Christian spirituality and the Christian literature that supports it. Clearly, any such list is highly selective--and subjective--defined as the "best" and most representative of the vast number of works now appropriated as Christian literature. It is our hope that these titles will meet librarians' and readers' needs as among those most likely to be known, asked for, and studied by both general readers and secondary and college-level students in a variety of courses, from literature and to the history of religion. - Publisher
After-words : post-Holocaust struggles with forgiveness, reconciliation, justice by John K Roth( )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 1,504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Writing in a format that creates the feel of dialogue, the nine contributors to After-Words tackle difficult questions about the nature of memory and forgiveness after the Holocaust. This book - created out of shared concerns about forgiveness, reconciliation, and justice, and out of a desire to investigate differences and disagreements between religious traditions and philosophical perspectives - represents an effort to spark meaningful dialogue between Jews and Christians and to encourage others to participate in similar inter- and intrafaith inquiries."--Jacket
Pope Pius XII and the Holocaust( )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2018 in English and held by 1,489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collaborative effort by a number of the world's leading experts on the Holocaust examines the question: how should Vatican policies during World War II be understood? Specifically, could Pope Pius XII have curbed the Holocaust by vigorously condemning the Nazi killing of Jews? Was Pius XII really 'Hitler's Pope', as John Cornwell suggested? Or has he unfairly become a scapegoat when he is really deserving of canonization as a saint? In Pope Pius XII and the Holocaust, scholars including Michael Marrus, Michael Phayer, Richard L. Rubenstein and Susan Zuccotti wrestle with these questions. The book has four main themes: (1) Pope Pius XII must be understood in his particular historical context. (2) Pope Pius XII put the well-being of the Roman Catholic Church, as he understood it, first and foremost. (3) In retrospect, Pope Pius XII's priorities, understandable though they are, not only make him a problematic Christian leader but also raise important questions about post-Holocaust Christian identity. (4) Jewish and Christian memories of the Holocaust will remain different, but reconciliation can continue to grow. On all sides, relations between Christians and Jews can be improved by an honest engagement with history and by continuing reflection on what post-Holocaust Christian and Jewish identities ought and ought not to mean."--Bloomsbury Publishing

Different voices : women and the Holocaust by Carol Rittner( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until now there has never been a systematic assessment of the "double jeopardy" of Jewish women in the Holocaust, because most of the chroniclers of this cruelest tragedy of modern history have been men. Yet for women, as scholar Myrna Goldenberg observes, "The hell was the same, but the horrors were different." Different Voices is the most thoroughgoing examination of women's experiences of the Holocaust ever compiled. It gathers together - for the first time in a single volume - the latest insights of scholars, the powerful testimonies of survivors, and the eloquent reflections of writers, theologians, and philosophers. Twenty-eight women in all speak of Hitler's "Final Solution," from the rising storm in prewar Germany to the terrors and privations of the camps, and of the everyday heroism that kept hope alive. Part One, "Voices of Experience," recounts the painful and poignant stories of survivors. We hear Olga Lengyel's anguish at discovering that she had unwittingly sent her mother and son to the gas chamber; on recalling the brutality of Irma Griese, a stunningly beautiful SS officer; on witnessing the unspeakable "medical experiments" the Nazis conducted on women. We share Livia F. Britton's memory of hunger and terrible vulnerability as a naked thirteen-year-old at Auschwitz. We learn of the horrific price that Dr. Gisela Perl was forced to pay to save women's lives. Part Two, "Voices of Interpretation," offers the new insights of women scholars of the Holocaust, including evidence that the Nazis specifically preyed on women as the propagators of the Jewish race. Marion A. Kaplan describes the lives of a generation of Jewish women who thought that they were assimilated into German society. Gisela Bok examines the Nazi's eugenics theories and sterilization programs, and Gitta Sereny questions Theresa Stangl, wife of the Kommandant of Sobibor and Treblinka, about her perceptions of the atrocities and of her moral responsibility. In Part Three, "Voices of Reflection," women artists and intellectuals contemplate the Holocaust. The poems of Irena Klepfisz decry the violent sexual persecutions of women, and a play by Ida Fink dramatizes the painful process of remembering. Mary Jo Leddy explores the ethics of power and powerlessness. Joan Ringelheim explains her pioneering recovery of women's stories of abuse, as well as her provocative statistics suggesting that more Jewish women than Jewish men actually perished in the Holocaust. Lyrical, vivid, and affecting, Different Voices is a powerful commemoration of the sufferings and of the courage of Jewish women during the darkest years of the twentieth century. Its stories, reflections, and scholarly interpretations recover a realm of memory that, until now, has been fragmentary, all but lost. It is a compelling - and essential - contribution to our knowledge of the Holocaust

The Oxford handbook of Holocaust studies by Peter Hayes( Book )

23 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few scholarly fields have developed in recent decades as rapidly and vigorously as Holocaust Studies. The persecution and murder perpetrated by the Nazi regime have become the subject of an enormous literature in multiple academic disciplines and a touchstone of public and intellectual discourse - including politics, ethics and religion - at the start of the twenty-first century. Forward-looking and multi-disciplinary, this Handbook is thematically divided into five broad sections: Enablers, Protagonists, Settings, Representations, and Aftereffects. It draws on the work of an international team of over forty outstanding scholars
Holocaust : religious and philosophical implications( Book )

9 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Holocaust: Religious and Philosophical Implications is an anthology specifically designed for use as a textbook for courses on the Holocaust in universities and adult study groups. It is a complilation of what are now "classic" pieces in the voluminous literature on the Holocaust - pieces by Raul Hilberg, Hannah Arendt, Primo Levi, George Steiner, Richard Rubenstein and Irving Greenberg - all organized around what the editors have found to be the most often asked questions by their students: (1) Is the Holocaust unique? (2) What really happened in the ghettos and death camps? (3) Who knew what was going on? (4) How could people do the things they did? (5) What about God? Governed by the thesis that the Holocaust left fundamental questions, Holocaust: Religious and Philosophical Implications, in addition to being organized around the five themes identified above, addresses the multiple implications of complexities such as resistance during the Holocaust, and Jewish and Christian identity after Auschwitz. --
The American religious experience; the roots, trends, and future of American theology by Frederick Sontag( Book )

6 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The moral philosophy of William James by William James( Book )

10 editions published between 1834 and 1969 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here, in a single volume, are selections from the writings of William James that cover the entire spectrum of his work as psychologist, moral philosopher, pragmatist, and metaphysician. These selections concentrate on the theme of James's moral philosophy. Although James was acknowledged as one of the dominant philosophers of his time, his total moral perspective is not easy to grasp. This is because he never developed a fully unified statement of his position. Rather, his illuminating reflections on moral issues were scattered unsystematically throughout his writings. This volume focuses attention on writings that are at the heart of James's ethical perspective. -- Book jacket
World philosophers and their works( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the lives, works, and influence of ancient and contemporary world philosophers from Pythagoras and Jalal al-Din Rumi to Elie Wiesel and Alison M. Jaggar, and analyzes the authorship and historical context of ancient works
Gray zones : ambiguity and compromise in the Holocaust and its aftermath by Jonathan Petropoulos( )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few essays about the Holocaust are better known or more important than Primo Levi's reflections on what he called "the gray zone," a reality in which moral ambiguity and compromise were pronounced. In this volume, accomplished Holocaust scholars explore the terrain that Levi identified. Together they bring a necessary interdisciplinary focus to bear on timely and often controversial topics in cutting-edge Holocaust studies that range from historical analysis to popular culture. While each essay utilizes a particular methodology and argues for its own thesis, the volume as a whole advances the claim that the more we learn about the Holocaust, the more complex that event turns out to be. Only if ambiguities and compromises in the Holocaust and its aftermath are identified and explored, and at times allowed to remain -- lest resolution deceive us -- will our awareness of the Holocaust and its implications be as full as possible."--Book jacket
