SHOFAR Spring 2000 Vol. 18, No.3 material and the internal or immanent logic of a poem. Koelle's study does not, and cannot, entertain this question, given its insistence on the distinction between experience and expression, life and work, content and form. What thus gets lost in her analysis is the poetic and religious word, a word which is irreducible to any doctrine or doctrinal statement. Rochelle Tobias Department of German Johns Hopkins University Peace, In Deed: Essays in Honor of Harry James Cargas, edited by Zev Garber and Richard Libowitz. Atlanta: Scholars Press and South Florida Studies in the History of Judaism, 1998. 253 pp. $39.95. The death of Harry James Cargas has left a vacuum in the world of Holocaust scholarship. This past year, we lost some of the major Christian leaders and thinkers who worked on the Holocaust, virtually an entire generation of scholars. A. Roy Eckardt, a pioneer in Holocaust Studies and post-Holocaust Jewish-Christian relations died this past year, as did Paul van Buren, whose multi-volume study of Jewish Christian relations in Early Christianity is important both theologically and historically. Edward Flannery, the pioneering Roman Catholic priest whose work was impo~t, was taken from us.
