Philip Jenkins delivers a fearless examination of the darkand violent verses of the Bible-and a call for us to read them anew in pursuitof a richer, more honest faith. 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. Readers of Bart Ehrman's God's Problem,John Selby Spong's The Sins of Scripture, andJenkins's own The Jesus Wars, as well as every Christian eager to squarethe recurrent violence of the Scripture with Christianity's enduring message ofpeace, will find these difficult questions explored in full in Laying Downthe Sword.
