Divine Presence Amid Violence

Full Product Description

We often find the biolent texts in the Old Testament to be both morally repulsive and theologically problematic. This is not simply because they are violent, but because they seem to endorse violence committed in the name of Yahweh. Religious violence in a burning issue in our world and many Christians struggle to find the God of Jesus in texts which appear to endorse such behaviour.

In this readable little book Walter Brueggemann proposes a way of receiving some of these troubling texts as contaning genuine divine revelation. He takes Joshua chapter 11 as a case study and shows how we might hear a challenging word from God to his people today through its violent story.

Divine Presence Amid Violence by Walter Bruggemann was published by Paternoster Press in July 2009 and is our 21522nd best seller. The ISBN for Divine Presence Amid Violence is 9781842276600.
