    Shoah Education: The Indian Scenario.Mehak Burza - 2022 - Socio-Historical Examination of Religion and Ministry 4 (1):46-58.
    India represents a country that was neither directly affected nor involved with the Holocaust. As the timeline of the Holocaust overlaps the timeline of the struggle for freedom for the Indian subcontinent, the later events overshadow the former. Holocaust education is neither mandatory nor prevalent in India. Equating the partition of India with the Holocaust and tagging the Holocaust as one of the genocides, represents one of the few misconceptions about the Holocaust in India that often strips off the uniqueness (...)

    Book Review: Varieties of Jesus Mythicism. [REVIEW]Richard Carrier - 2022 - Socio-Historical Examination of Religion and Ministry 4 (1):171-192.
    The edited volume, Varieties of Jesus Mythicism, aims to present diverse approaches and theories to the debate on Jesus’ historical existence. While it includes several enlightening and worthwhile contributions, there are too many amateur contributions employing dubious claims and methodologies. The result is that, apart from the few worthy contributions, the book as a whole is only useful for comparing poor with genuine scholarship. And some advice on how to make such a comparison, so as to distinguish the one from (...)

    The Shoah and Jewish Faith: Voices From the Midst of Tragedy.Kenneth L. Hanson - 2022 - Socio-Historical Examination of Religion and Ministry 4 (1):1-14.
    There has understandably been a good deal of emphasis on how Jewish faith has been affected in the wake of the genocidal catastrophe of the Shoah. Much less attention has been devoted, however, to how observant Jews were impacted, with regard to their faith, in the midst of the tragedy. Elie Wiesel, for his part, was said to have put God on trial at Auschwitz. It will also be instructive to consider two Jewish leaders, both ultra-orthodox rabbis, who were victims (...)

    Nazi Decontextualization of the Bible.Jason Hensley - 2022 - Socio-Historical Examination of Religion and Ministry 4 (1):30-44.
    When spreading antisemitic ideology, Hitler and his followers sometimes turned to the Bible to verify and support their hatred of the Jews. Passages such as “you are of your father the devil,” were used to encourage Bible-believing Christians that Jesus himself was antisemitic and that those who held antipathy towards the Jews were following Jesus’s legacy. However, many of these passages that the Nazis used to support their antisemitism were taken out of context and the original intent of the author (...)

    Free Will, the Holocaust, and The Problem of Evil.David Kyle Johnson - 2022 - Socio-Historical Examination of Religion and Ministry 4 (1):81-96.
    In this paper, I ask whether the occurrence of the Holocaust is good reason to doubt the existence of God. To do so, I will explore different varieties of the problem of evil to determine exactly what kind of argument the problem of the Holocaust is. I will then explore proposed solutions to the relevant varieties of the problem of evil to see if they can solve the problem of the Holocaust. The logical problem of the Holocaust, I will argue, (...)

    Islamic Jihad and the Holocaust: From Hitler to Hamas.David Patterson - 2022 - Socio-Historical Examination of Religion and Ministry 4 (1):60-70.
    This article examines Haj Amin al-Husseini’s involvement in the Holocaust, his ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Brotherhood’s post-Holocaust influence on the spread of exterminationist Jew hatred. The article examines the connection between the Nazis and the Muslim Brotherhood facilitated by al-Husseini, showing the pivotal nature of the Arab Revolt of 1936 – 1939 in these relationships. By then the Brotherhood was sending delegations to the Nuremberg rallies and distributing the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and Arabic-language selections (...)

    The Danger of Cultural Erasure in Inter-Ethnic, Inter-Religious, Trans-National Rescue During Genocide: A Comparison of the Shoah and the Bosnian Civil War.Elyse Pierce - 2022 - Socio-Historical Examination of Religion and Ministry 4 (1):16-28.
    International genocide intervention strategies that involve the extended evacuation and/or displacement of refugees often save the physical lives of would-be victims at the expense of psychological and social trauma and cultural erasure. Through a comparison of the international rescue efforts of the Kindertransport program in Great Britain prior to and during the Second World War and the refugee caravans organized by La Benevolencija in Sarajevo during the Bosnian Civil War, the benefits and dangers of inter-ethnic, inter-religious rescue in times of (...)

    A New Paradigm for the Study of Christian Origins: Replacing the Dendritic Model.Frank R. Zindler - 2022 - Socio-Historical Examination of Religion and Ministry 4 (1):114-152.
    This article argues that the dendritic or traditional model of Christian origins must be replaced with a plectic model. The dendritic model assumes that Christianity began at a specific point in both time and space—in the person of “Jesus of Nazareth”—and then branched out to form the various ancient sects of Christianity. This article asks: What if the numerous forms of “Christianity” did not all derive from a single historical figure? What if these earliest “Christianities” arose in the same way (...)
