Is Religion Killing Us? by Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer
Book DescriptionA provocative look at the violent content of 'sacred scripture' and what Jews, Christians, and Muslims must do to re-vision their faiths away from justifying violence. 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.
