Marc Ellis' Jewish Theology of Liberation has already become something of a classic. It is wonderful to have this book in a new and expanded version that covers Marc Ellis' life and prophetic thought up to the present.

Marc H. Ellis (born 1952) is an American author, liberation theologian, and a retired University Professor of Jewish Studies, Professor of History and Director of the Center for Jewish Studies at Baylor University. He is currently visiting professor of several international universities, including the University of Innsbruck, Austria and the United Nations University for Peace, Costa Rica.

Marc Ellis fine book about the future of the Jewish community was first published in 1987. But twenty years on, in the light of recent events in the Middle East and post-September 11, its powerful message of hope, directed towards a people 'poised between Holocaust and empowerment', remains as powerful, apposite, and pressingly relevant as it was before. An alternative perspective of what it means to be Jewish begins to emerge, and in the final chapter a Jewish theology of liberation is essayed, which is a theology prepared 'to enter the danger zones of contemporary Jewish life', often at some cost.

This book must be read with an honestly searching heart. It is powerful, and it is a call to renewal. How much violence can we turn a blind eye to? If you can't face the idea that the oppressed can easily become the oppressers and seek truth, then you will learn nothing. Ellis wants us to look at ALL humanity with the utmost mercy. That is sometimes a hard pill to swallow, especially to people who have been wronged unforgivably. This a fantastically testing book that can be read to gain wisdom not just on the Isreali-Palstinian conflict, but many other conflicts as well. I would highly recommend it.

While I wholeheartedly concur with the content of the review by Midwest Book Review, I must point out that the book is NOT by Susannah Heschel. The book is writen by Jewish Liberation Theologian, Marc Ellis. It is a must read for every person of conscience!

This book starts right out with a forward by Desmond Tutu, who starts by telling us that he's not anti-Semitic. I think that the Jewish community will have to decide if he's right about that. Tutu then tells about the Jewish misfortunes in (presumably) World War Two: "they were humiliated, they were dispossessed, they were driven from their homes." That's true. But Tutu just can not bring himself to add that millions of them were systematically murdered! And he then adds "how could it be possible that people who experienced such untold suffering could now in their turn through the Israeli government treat others as abominably as they were treated?" Well, there is a very simple answer. They don't. And were I to say what Tutu wrote, I would expect to be called an anti-Semite.

Tutu does not stop with this, however. He adds a taunt: "God" ... "will not be mocked forever. This is a moral universe and all the arrogantly powerful who treat God's favourites" ... "harshly will get their comeuppance." It just could be that the Arabs are indeed more than a little arrogant and may be treating the Jews harshly and unfairly, but Tutu does not appear to consider this.

Once we get into the actual book, Ellis tells us that he used to be "ignorant" of the history of Israel. To a large extent, I suspect he still is. Still, when he discusses the Holocaust, he calls it "the death of six million Jews and the attempted annihilation of our entire people." Maybe he ought to tell Tutu that!

The author then talks about the views of Irving Greenberg as well as those of Nathan and Ruth Ann Perlmutter. Greenberg appears to have some sensible things to say. So do the Perlmutters, who discuss anti-Zionism. As Ellis points out, what shocks the Perlmutters is not so much the anti-Semitic tirades at the UN "but the lack of response from other delegates." That's fair.

But then Ellis tells of the views of Shorris, who comes up with a totally absurd caricature of the views of the "Jewish neoconservative movement." I'm not a conservative, but I can see that Shorris is way out of line, and so is Ellis for taking what he says seriously. Ellis also discusses the idea that some Jews ought to try to prevent a second Holocaust (one of the Israeli Jews). He makes fun of that idea, but I think that given the enormous barrage of anti-Zionist propaganda, such a threat needs to be taken seriously.

Ellis also mentions Rubenstein, who "states that Germany `demonstrated that a modern state can successfully organize an entire people for its own extermination.'" Perhaps Ellis ought to take this to heart, given that if there is indeed a second Holocaust, Ellis himself may well be seen as just one more Jewish official who gave some support to the perpetrators of genocide.

The author asks about how to challenge Jewish views. That is more than fair. But he then comes up with the following absurdity: "Who, then, is to challenge the Jewish framework of renewal if not one who has suffered under its heel?" Um, does he mean Jezebel, who was murdered by the Jews? Or, maybe, does he mean some victims of the Jewish Zealots of the First Century AD? Or does he mean some recent opponents of Jewish rights, such as the German National Socialists? He has to be kidding.

Ellis seems to have nothing but praise for the vicious anti-Semitism of Naim Ateek. Ellis quotes Ateek at length. I find it Ateek's demands for Jews to falsely confess to crimes so that they can be "forgiven" and oppressed quite disgusting.

The author comments that "it just might be that the real prejudice of the day is found neither in the United Nations, nor in the Jewish critique of Israel, but in the Jewish community, where images of the unwashed, the ignorant, and the terrorist are repeated ad nauseum." This is preposterous. Is Ellis implying that it would be better for the Jewish community to itself adopt a philosophy of racism, arrogance, and self-destruction, with all the trappings: aggression, lies, terrorism, and suicide bombings? I think it is far better for a community to recognize that such a philosophy is counterproductive and to try to stay as far away from it as possible.

This is a ghastly book. Another reviewer pretty much called it a blood libel at best, and I agree.

Marc Ellis, thinks that Blacks Hawks fly off the pages of the Torah has ideas about the State of Israel that loom somewhere between fantasy, and a deep hatred of Israel and being a Jew. This book blames Jews on the breaking of the Covenant, and is blood libel at it's best.
