Book Reviews from this phenomenon for improving outreach to alienated Jewish youth remains an open question. Werner Israel Halpern, M.D. Rochester, New York Shoah, The Paradigmatic Genocide: Essays in Exegesis and Eisegesis, by Zev Garber. Lanham, MD: University Press of America, 1994. 213 pp. $29.50. It is exciting to read a book that not only provides important and useful information about a subject but also evokes the reader's own response, whether in agreement or argumentation. Such a book is Garber's collection of essays (many originally delivered at scholarly conferences, but frequently revised for this volume). As the author wrestles with texts, traditions, and history, he is un bomme engage, and the reader participates in the process. Chapters three, seven, eight, and nine are particularly powerful and consequently challenged my own thought more deeply-all to the good. Among the many important issues dealt with are: the Shoah either as unique or as one more example of humankind's inhumanityj God's place and/or role in history and in this particular massive suffering; Christian culpability and its sourceSj the Akedah of Isaac's near-sacrifice, Jacob's wrestling with the "angel" atJabbok, and Jesus' agonizingdeathj forgetting and/or forgiving; the Passover celebration of freedom versus the
