What religious values and ultimate vision would you wish to pass along to your children? How does one sort through what is authentic and inauthentic in a religious tradition today and forge its future? These are the questions Marc Ellis attempts to answer in this personal yet programmatic work. Ellis reflects on the encounters that have been decisive in his own religious realms: the personal and the political. His work is a meditation on what can be learned and retained from his encounters with the Catholic Worker movement, post-Holocaust theology, Latin America Liberation Theology, engagement with the Palestinian cause, and acknowledgment of Israeli violence.
Marc H. Ellis is University Professor of American and Jewish Studies and Director of the Center for American and Jewish Studies at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. One of today's foremost Jewish theologians, he has taught at Maryknoll School of Theology at Florida State University and served as a Senior Fellow and Visiting Scholar at Harvard University. Among his many books are Unholy Alliance: Religion and Atrocity In Our Time (1997, 978-0-8006-3080-5), O, Jerusalem! (1999, 978-0-8006-3159-8), and Practicing Exile: The Religious Odyssey of an American Jew (2001, 978-0-8006-3443-8), all from Fortress Press.
