Is religion killing us?: violence in the Bible and the Quran

Book Cover
Pub. Date:
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. No accommodationist, Nelson-Pallmeyer cannot find any place for violence, even when exercised against evil. -Publishers Weekly especially provocative . . . incite us to grapple with what it means to follow Jesus. -The Other Side Anything but passive, Nelson-Pallmeyer's radical pacifism sends sparks flying in all directions. -The Booklist
