Revelation, the Religions and Violence
By: Leo D. Lefebure
What is the relationship between religion and violence? What sense does it make to proclaim that God has been revealed in a world of many religions and incessant sectarian violence? This book extends the path-breaking insights of Rene Girard exploring how the diverse experiences of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and Eastern religions address this universal challenge.
