Description

A provocative look at the violent content of 'sacred scripture' and what Jews, Christians, and Muslims must do to re-vision their faiths away from justifying violence. Post 9/11 attention has focused on Islam as a violent religion, but Nelson-Pallmeyer shows that the Bible and the Quran both have ample violence-justifying content to support "holy" and other wars. The challenge, he maintains, is to acknowledge violence in "sacred scripture" and re-vision God's power.

Author Biography

Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer is Assistant Professor of Justice and Peace Studies. For more than twenty years he has studied and written about the relationship of religion, violence, and peace, and his books include Jesus Against Christianity: Reclaiming the Missing Jesus (Trinity Press International).
