Reviews

"This book is a significant, in-depth study of James Cone and Emil Fackenheim, two brilliant thinkers of our time, on the issue of suffering, moral evil, and theodicy. Buhring has written insightfully on African American and Jewish responses to racism and the Holocaust." - Harold Kasimow, George Drake Professor of Religious Studies, Grinnell College
