Hope Through Honesty



With one week before the election, Colin talks to Dr. Susannah Heschel, professor of Jewish Studies and daughter of the great Abraham Joshua Heschel, about the troubling intersection of religion and politics in modern day America, and how this relates to the role religion played in Hitler's Germany. Dr. Heschel is Chair of the Jewish Studies Program and the Eli Black Professor of Jewish Studies at Dartmouth College. Her scholarship focuses on Jewish-Christian relations in Germany during the 19th and 20th centuries, the history of biblical scholarship, and the history of anti-Semitism. She is the author of the bookThe Aryan Jesus: Christian Theologians and the Bible in Nazi Germany. Susannah's father is the internationally recognized scholar and theologian, Abraham Joshua Heschel, author of such seminal works as The Sabbath and The Prophets.
