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.

Recommended reading for all those who want to understand the problems we face as Americans. I describe it as spiritual ignorance. Great critque and exegesis of the word.
