Publisher's Summary

In a time when religious warfare is on the rise and the most dangerous and violent social movements seem to be religiously motivated, this explanation of war in the Hebrew Scriptures meets an urgent pastoral need. Lawrence Boadt addresses the issue in five poignant presentations:

War and Violence in the History of the Old Testament
The Divine Warrior Tradition
The Prophetic Traditions on Violence
Peace and Conflict in the Wisdom Tradition of Israel, and finally
Anger, War, and peace - divine and human in the Psalms and New Testament.
With impeccable scholarship and riveting clarity Fr. Boadt takes the listener on a journey of enlightenment that is so important in an era of darkened rage and ignorance.
