Read online Freedom and Law: A Jewish-Christian Apologetics.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Freedom and Law: A Jewish-Christian Apologetics Freedom and Law offers a provocative new view of the relationship between human desire the production of knowledge and conceptions of power by developing a nonpolemical account of divine law Where recent trends in political theology have insisted upon the antagonistic nature of the law this book presents the paradigm altering power of a discourse in the nexus between law and freedom It demonstrates how this nexus catapults religious thought into a free and powerful engagement with nonreligious political ethical and social positions Freedom and Law challenges a contemporary wave of scholarship including the work of Jacob Taubes Giorgio Agamben and Slavoj Zizek that identifies Jewish law as the originary soucre of polemic between nations and therefore as historically responsible for the exceptionalism that undergirds contemporary conflict By contrast Freedom and Law argues that only in an account of revelatory law can divine freedom and human freedom be thought of without contradiction The first part analyzes the logic of exceptionalism In the second part the author argues that one cannot invoke a doctrine of election without rigorous scrutiny of texts that portray an electing God and an elected people Once we scrutinize these texts the character of freedom and law within the divine human relationship shows itself to be different from that found in exceptionalist logics The third and final part examines the impact of the logic of the law on Jewish Christian apologetics Rather than require that one defend one s position to a nonbeliever this logic situates all epistemological justification within the order or freedom of God If the condition of the possibility of my claim is the reality of divine freedom such freedom also justifies the possibility of another s claim In a significant contribution to the post ecclesiastical reengagement between religion critical theory and the political Freedom and Law introduces new categories of knowledge and action into Jewish and Christian thinking unbound by the dialectics of desire that has dominated the discourse of both traditions for centuries It shows how thinking of law and freedom together may now enable Judaism and Christianity to engage in a historically self conscious and nonrelativistic relation to each other and to nonbelievers by Randi Rashkover

Many theologians contend that liturgical texts and rituals have important implications for our public life together i Liturgy Time and the Politics of Redemption i advances a timely conversation about the place of religious reasoning in public discourse by attending to the way the scriptures are liturgically performed in Jewish and Christian communities It includes diverse examinations of liturgy of interest to theologians philosophers and clergy and brings Jewish and Christian thinkers into conversation showing parallels in these traditions liturgical reasoning and opening new possibilities for Jewish Christian relations br br b Contributors b Scott Bader Saye br Oliver Davies br Robert Gibbs br Steven Kepnes br Shaul Magid br Peter Ochs br C C Pecknold br Ben Quash br Randi Rashkover br Graham Ward br Samuel Wells, The Radical Traditions series cuts new lines of enquiry across a confused array of debates concerning the place of theology in the modern world The series invites Jewish Christian and Islamic theologians back to the word recovering modes of scriptural reasoning that underlie modernist reasoning The latest in series Liturgy Time and the Politics of Redemption is divided into five parts Liturgical Acts Liturgical Time Liturgical Scrolling Liturgical Improvisation and Liturgical Silence each featuring essays about a different aspect of Jewish or Christian liturgy Among the highlights In the first part Peter Ochs invites readers to participate in a thought experiment that demonstrates how the act of reciting Jewish Morning Prayer has the potential for reorienting our view of the world Sam Wells presents an improvisational reading of the Book of Esther in the section entitled Liturgical Improvisation He illustrates how the idea of overacceptance characterizes Christian engagement with the world In the section entitled Liturgical Silence Oliver Davies imports two Russian words for silence molchanie and tishina to illumine what he calls the silence of the cross Taken together the essays challenge the modern and postmodern understandings of time that Western culture takes for granted and pose alternatives that to quote coeditor Randi Rashkover have the capacity to redefine sociality and choreograph the redemption of time through political acts of liturgical life, Revelation and Theopolitics Barth Rosenzweig and the Politics of Praise overcomes false dichotomies between reason and faith spawned by modernity s emphasis on rationalism arguing that such errors are overcome by a theology of testimony exemplified in the thought of Karl Barth and Franz Rosenzweig br br Rejecting the neo Kantian emphasis on moral self reliance Barth and Rosenzweig present what Rashkover terms a theology of testimony to the God who loves through the event of divine election Moreover determined by their scriptural theologies of testimony Barth and Rosenzweig present a parallel re interpretation of the Word of God that re enlivens the meaningful and non dogmatic character of Jewish and Christian religious life and strengthens them to provide a voice of cultural criticism and faithful witness in the context of the challenges posed by contemporary society, Judaism Liberalism and Political Theology provides the first broad encounter between modern Jewish thought and recent developments in political theology In opposition to impetuous associations of Judaism and liberalism and charges that Judaism cannot engender a universal political order the essays in this volume propose a new and richly detailed engagement between Judaism and the political The vexed status of liberalism in Jewish thought and Judaism in political theology is interrogated with recourse to thinking from across the Continental tradition
