The Unholy in Holy Scripture
Full Product Description
The Bible is the most widely read and translated book in the world, and its influence is immeasurable. Nonetheless, according to Gerd Ludemann, its use by Christians is highly selective. Ludemann asks, what about those parts of the Bible that contain God's command to exterminate entire peoples or those texts which demonize other faiths? He focuses first on the practice of Holy War and then on the anti-Judaism of New Testament writings. He also tackles the question of how, given this destructive side of Scripture, we can continue to be Christians. In response, he points to the person of Jesus and his example.
The Unholy in Holy Scripture by Gerd Ludemann was published by Westminster John Knox in March 1997. The ISBN for The Unholy in Holy Scripture is 9780664257392.
