THRS 3221 - The Holocaust and Christian Faith

5 credit hours
Responding to the question, “Where was God at Auschwitz?” The former Chief Rabbi of Great Britain, Immanuel Jakobovits, states the most important issue of the Holocaust was, “Where was man? Where was human morality amidst the Nazi regime?” this course explores the religious challenge posed by the Holocaust by exploring the writings of both Jewish and Christian writers and analyzing the shift in understanding regarding the challenging questions about God, evil, freewill and suffering. An understanding of the psycho-spiritual, social process and development that allowed the Holocaust to occur will be explored in order to examine modern genocide and/or at risk for genocide situation around the globe.
