About The Book
No one can read far in the Hebrew Bible without encountering depictions of violence carried out by human beings, sometimes in the name of God, or indeed violence carried out or commanded by Godfrom Cains murder of Abel to the slaughter of Canaanite populations and much. For those who read the Bible as sacred scripture, such depictions can pose tremendous moral and theological challenges. Eric A. Seibert faces these challenges head-on, offering perspectives on the roles human and divine violence play in different parts of the Old Testament, evaluating the biblical presentation of virtuous violence, and proposing strategies for reading the Bible out of a commitment to nonviolence. At last he offers soundings in biblical texts where we encounter alternative voices, often neglected, that seek and announce ways of peace.
