View Full Version : Protest Theology
May 7th 2003, 12:13 AM
I am an Orthodox Jew who is very interested in Protest Theology. I have recently read a book by Dr. David R. Blumental titled "Facing the Abusing God: A Theology of Protest". I was wondering if any of my my Fellow People of the Book, had read this book and if so what were their thoughts on it. I would like to have an exchange of ideas but first would like to know if anyone has read the book and\or has had any other interested and experiance in this subject

I may be just completely ignorant, but do you mean protestant theology?
By the way, nice to met a real Jew.

I must admit i have not read the book,, but only the reviews.
From what I have read, I would not spend the $28.95, and this is the reason: (taken from a review)
"while God is often loving and kind, fair and merciful. God is also capable of acts so unjust they can only be described as abusive."
"articulates a theology of protest which accepts God as God is, yet defends the innocence of those who are utterly victimized"
It is the Holy Scriptures that determine theology, and man's wisdom and reasoning are always subject to the Scriptures. I'd be more than willing to discuss his ideas in light of the Scriptures, and it will take me a little time to do some more research.
May we come to know Yeshua, the peace that passes all understanding
