Facing the Abusing God

Full Product Description

In this very powerful book, David Blumenthal maintains that having faith in a post-holocaust world means admitting that while God is often loving and kind, fair and merciful. God is also capable of acts so unjust they can only be described as abusive. Grounding his argument in the scriptures and in the experience of holocaust survivors and of survivors of child abuse. Blumenthal grapples with how to face a God who works "wondrously through us" and who has worked "aw(e)fully against us". Delving into Jewish literary and theological traditions, the author articulates a theology of protest which accepts God as God is, yet defends the innocence of those who are utterly victimized.

Facing the Abusing God by David R. Blumenthal was published by Westminster John Knox in November 1993 and is our 48113th best seller. The ISBN for Facing the Abusing God is 9780664254643.
