About the Authors
  • In this study Oliver Leaman poses two questions: how can a powerful and caring deity allow terrible things to happen to obviously innocent people, and why have the Jewish people been so harshly treated throughout history, given their status as the chosen people? He explores these issues through an analysis of the views of Philo, Saadya, Maimonides, Gersonides, Spinoza, Mendelssohn, Hermann Cohen, Buber, Rosenzweig, and post-Holocaust thinkers.

    • First book of its kind in English
    • Written accessibly with a student readership in mind
    • Covers a wide range from the earliest Jewish philosophers to post-Holocaust thinkers
    • Emphasises a philosophical approach to the subject, but will also be relevant to theologians
