-Publisher

Religion is powerful and religion is dangerous. Steffen follows this insight as he explore the demonic dynamic in the dominant monotheistic traditions of the West: Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. "in these pages I will argue that people are religious the way they are because of the choices they make about how to be religious. People are religious in particular ways, and how they construct and practice religion rests, finally, on a fundamental moral turn to be religious either in a life-affirming way or demonically." --from the Preface Examining the differences between concepts of God related to ultimacy and absolutism, Steffen names absolutism as the source of destructive, life-defying religion, explaining that it is the "central reason and main cause for religion becoming dangerous and turning demonic."
-Publisher

Exploring the differences between concepts of God related to elimacy and absolutism. Steffan names abslusim as the destructive, life-delying religion. "Absolutism" he says "is the central reason and the main course for religion becoming dangerous and surmomg demonic." Part I explores the power and danger of religion and the two options for being religious the life affirming option with its vision of goodness and demonic option with its destructiveness in the context of ultimacy, its negation of freedom and its self-description and denial of goodness. Part II explores religion and the restraint of violence as its looks all the pacified option, the case of holy war, and the case of just war.
