(p.153) 4 Forms of Theological Language in Franz Rosenzweig's The Star of Redemption
Contemplative Nation
Stanford University Press

This chapter uses the Jewish Theological Practice (JTP) model to analyze Franz Rosenzweig's The Star of Redemption. After providing a brief introduction to Rosenzweig and his book, it considers the methodological issues peculiar to the Star. It discusses two of Rosenzweig's contemporary interpreters, Leora Batnitzky and Peter Gordon and then explores exegesis, hermeneutics, divine perfection, and religious experience as sources for the principal theological claims in the Star. In the Star, Rosenzweig promotes a highly intimate divine-human relationship that purports to produce limited knowledge of God. The chapter concludes by addressing the limits that Rosenzweig places on his theological language.

Keywords:   Jewish Theological Practice, Franz Rosenzweig, The Star of Redemption, Leora Batnitzky, Peter Gordon, exegesis, hermeneutics, divine perfection, religious experience, theological language
