Description
Summary:In this response to Caputo and Marshall's papers, I am offering a Jewish perspective on hope. Jewish theology is neither systematic nor linear. In fact, the use of the word "theology" is rather new in the Jewish lexicon. Jewish structures of meaning are based on the use of narrative, law, and experiences. A Jewish life may or may not be based on faith or belief in order to make it a strong, meaningful, and ethical life centered in Jewish identity. Yet despite the lexical differences, Caputo and Marshall offer Jewish thinkers essential thoughts and questions regarding the philosophical, theological, and practical levels of hope as we struggle to maintain it during these complex times.
