What can a credibility-challenged Christianity contribute to a post-Holocaust world? Many argue that in a post-Holocaust world, Christians must address their own culpability in the destruction of Europe’s Jewry. If post-Holocaust Christians only lament Christianity’s sin, which has been catastrophically destructive in its anti-Jewish manifestations, the tradition will be ultimately left with little to say and no credibility. Post-Holocaust Christians must emphasize positive differences that Christianity can make, including • Repentant honesty about Christianity’s anti-Jewish history • New appreciation for the Jewish origins of Christianity, the Jewish identity of Jesus, and the continuing vitality of the Jewish people and their traditions • Welcome liberation from liturgies and biblical interpretations that promote harmful Christian exclusivism • Deepened understanding that the core of Christian practice is to love—inclusively and hospitably—one’s neighbors as oneself Informed by the best Holocaust scholarship and written in an accessible style, these essays show that God’s embodied presence in the world provides life and hope that even the Holocaust cannot destroy.

In a world composed of almost seven billion people, about 2.2 billion of them claim to be Christian. And while Christianity is continuing to grow at a modest rate, other religions are growing at a faster pace. Some scholars predict that Islam will overtake Christianity as the world’s largest religion by the middle of the twenty-first century. Predictions aside, religions are competing for the world stage, and in the competition, Christians seem certain that God is on their side. Christians often think and behave as though God is a Christian. This book is written to ask if that assumption is true and to foster a more open conversation about other world religions. The world has grown too small and the stakes for mankind have grown too high for any of us to engage our faith as if our understanding of God represents the only way God’s presence may be known in the world.
