From "one of America's best scholars ofreligion" (The Economist), this daring exploration of the Scripture'smost difficult passages forces us to confront and accept the violence that wasas integral to the formulation of Christianity's message as it was for manyother of the world's religions, and shows us how a full understanding of theScripture will allow us to finally move towards a more peaceful, spiritualworld.
