In this book, Philip Tite explores the role of biblical texts in the promotion of peace and violence. He begins by exploring the function of religious texts as ideological elements, recognizing that the New Testament affects the social construction of 'realities' or cultures within which people read and apply authoritative writings to ethical discussions. Arguing that an 'engaged reading ' of these texts is central within moral discourse, Dr. Tite explores such issues as feminist challenges to biblical ethics, Jewish-Christian relations, and gay and lesbian ethical disputes in Christianity.

Philip L. Tite

Philip L. Tite holds a Ph.D. in Religious Studies from McGill University. He has lectured in the Religous Studies Department at McGill University.

Tite's work is carefully researched, passionately argued, refreshingly self-reflective, and deeply thought provoking. -- Dorothy Jean Weaver, Palm Beach Atlantic University Studies In Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Vol. 35/2: 2006
