Jewish Theology in Our Time

A New Generation Explores the Foundations and Future of Jewish Belief


Edited by Rabbi Elliot J. Cosgrove, PhD

Available Fall 2009


Description Praise for About the Editor
A powerful and challenging examination of what Jews can believe—
by a new generation’s most dynamic and innovative thinkers.
The book that will set the next stage in the development of Jewish theological thought.

At every critical juncture in Jewish history, Jews have understood a dynamic theology to be essential for a vital Jewish community. This important collection sets the next stage of Jewish theological thought, bringing together a cross section of powerful new voices from all movements in Judaism to inspire and stimulate discussion both now and in the years to come.

Provocative and wide-ranging, these invigorating and challenging insights from a new generation’s thought leaders create a coherent and inspiring picture of Jewish belief. Together, they explore the breadth and depth of contemporary Jewish theological thinking:

Foundation of belief: How is it informed by sacred texts, and how does it inform life experience?
Limits of Jewish belief: What can a Jew believe and still call it Jewish theology? Who or what determines an “authentic” or “coherent” Jewish theology?
The role of the “non-Jew” in Jewish theology: Can one affirm a unique relationship between God and the Jewish people, yet validate the integrity of another theological system?
Israel: To what degree has the creation of a modern State of Israel forced a re-orientation of Jewish theology? How has the “actualization” of this longstanding theological category changed Jewish theology as a whole?
What’s next: Does the contemporary Jewish condition insist on any other “new questions” when it comes to Jewish theology? Does the “new atheism” suggest a new challenge to belief?
