""Holocaust Theology: A Reader" should prove useful as an introductory text which grapples with complex issues."

"Rabbi Dan Cohn-Sherbok has provided a much needed and indeed "panoramic survey of Holocaust theology" (1) that offers a comprehensive overview of excerpts from representative writings in the field. "Holocaust Theology: A Reader" provides a fine, comprehensive overview of the interpretive possibilities."
-"Journal of the American Academy of Religion",

"This anthology does indeed offer a panoramic survey, and thus is a valuable contribution to Holocaust literature.]"
