Editorial Reviews

Review

"David Gushee's wide-ranging research on the Holocaust rescuers redresses a serious omission in the literature in the area of Christian ethics. It is a response to the call of several Jewish scholars that Christians break their silence on rescuer interpretation" ―Beverley W. Harrison, Union Theological Seminary

"Despite decades of Holocaust studies and even mass media attention (e.g., Shindler's List), no full-length treatment of the Righteous Gentiles has appeared in and for Christian ethics. Who were these people? Why did they do what they did? What kind of Christianity was theirs, if any? How do we assess them, from a moral point of view? And what does it all mean for Christian ethics? Finally, with this book the lacuna has been filled, and David Gushess does it so very, very well." ―Larry L. Rasmussen, Union Theological Seminary

"This book confronts the record of Christian hatred and sin revealed in the baleful light of the Holocaust in a morally purifying way. It uncovers profound theological and ethical paradigms in the witness of Righteous Gentiles without glossing over or sentimentalizing the face of evil. Gushee's work is at once intellectually vital and spiritually restorative. Strongly recommended." ― Irving Greenberg, President, CLAL: National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership

"Superb analysis of the painful, urgent question, 'Why did so few Christians try to protect the Jews?' An excellent book..." ―Ronald J. Sider, Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary
