Creatively juxtaposing the thought of Walter Benjamin and Jurgen Moltmann, Zathureczky's commendable study explores prospects for a post-Holocaust Christian theology that subjects discourse about the Trinitarian God to messianic perspectives shared with Judaism. The result not only enriches Trinitarian thinking by connecting it more closely with historical remembrance and suffering, but also opens up new avenues for Jewish-Christian dialogue. I heartily recommend this book. -- Thomas E. Reynolds, Emmanuel College
This book hammers home a fresh, energetic account of the challenge of the Holocaust for contemporary Christian theology. It is essential reading, deserving of vigilant reading and weighty response. -- William J. Abraham, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
Zathureczky's reflections on the Trinity in light of the Messianic address the kinds of issues that are often overlooked not only in religious studies and theology but also in studies of epistemology. His analysis, based on readings of Walter Benjamin and Jurgen Moltmann, of how understandings of the world and God emerge out of tensions and from positions of the marginal is a significant contribution to cutting edge developments in contemporary scholarship. -- Joerg Rieger, Vanderbilt University; author of Christ And Empire
