An honest and compelling presentation of the problems and pitfalls surrounding the interpretation of New Testament texts relating to violence.

This is a survey of significant positions on this subject representing a wide range of theological and political perspectives.

Its accessible, non-technical language makes the book suitable for bible study groups.

It discusses questions such as:

  • What are we to make of the passages in the New Testament that appear to condone, incite or justify violence?
  •  Was the crucifixion of Jesus intended to assuage the anger of a vengeful God?
  •  What about the language of divine warfare?
  •  Does the repeated call for subordination create space for violence?
