The Destructive Power of Religion: Violence in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam

Ellens, J. Harold, editor
Westport, Conn.: Praeger, 2007

Description: Hailed in reviews as "unsettling but thought-provoking," "compelling," and "critical coverage," the set from which these chapters were drawn has a core theme that demonstrates the three major religions share the ancient notion that history and the human soul are caught in a cosmic conflict between good and evil, or God and devil, which cannot be resolved without violence, a cataclysmic final solution such as the extermination of nations, the execution of humans, or even the death of God's own son. As Archbishop Desmond Tutu wrote, "This is a groundbreaking work with tremendous insight."

Subjects: Methods, Theological Approaches, Ethics
