This Companion offers an overview of Jewish Theology, an aspect of Judaism that is equal in importance to law and ethics. Covering the period from antiquity to the present, the volume focuses on what Jews believe about God and also about the relation of God to humans and the world. Part I covers exciting new research in Jewish biblical and rabbinic theology, medieval philosophy, Kabbalah (Mysticism), and Liturgy. Part II turns to modern theology with an exploration of works by leading figures, such as Abraham I Kook, Franz Rosenzweig and Emmanuel Levinas, as well as the relation of theology to issues such as Feminism, the Holocaust, and the relation of Judaism to other world religions. In the final section, the Companion explores how the insights of analytic philosophy have been integrated with Jewish theology.
