Many of today's Christians are troubled by violence in our world. There is also a growing awareness of a relationship between religion and violence-although Christians tend to see this as a problem for religions other than their own. Many Jews, Christians, and Muslims are reluctant to acknowledge that the problem of religiously legitimated violence is related to violence in their "sacred" texts. In the case of Christianity, violent images and expectations of God permeate our theology, worship, music, and liturgies. This book has three main goals: To engage adult lay Christians in discussions that examine how and why Christianity came to have so many violent images and expectations of God To describe the historical and modern consequences of these violent images and expectations To offer alternative theological understandings and worship resources that are rooted in the nonviolent spirit of Jesus.
