In this searing work Marc Ellis asks whether Christianity and Judaism are irredeemably scarred by tragic violence, vengence, repression, and war. Or can genuine, life-giving elements in these traditions renew them and halt the cycle of violence? Is there God beyond violence?
Tragically, religion has often been associated with violence, repression, war, and vengeance. Where was God during the Holocaust? The violence in Bosnia, Rwanda, or the Middle East? Theologian and author Marc Ellis takes a searing look at religious integrity in the face of evil. Ellis's uncompromising moral sensitivity poses a frank examination of conscience for Christians and Jews alike who seek honestly to engage their tradition and their God.
