The Violence of the Biblical God

The Violence of the Biblical God

How can we make sense of violence in the Bible? Joshua commands the people of
Israel to wipe out everyone in the promised land of Canaan, while Jesus
commands God's people to love their enemies. How are we to interpret biblical
passages on violence when it is sanctioned at one point and condemned at
another?
The Violence of the Biblical God by L. Daniel Hawk presents a new framework,
solidly rooted in the authority of Scripture, for understanding the paradox of
God's participation in violence. Hawk shows how the historical narrative of the
Bible offers multiple canonical pictures for faithful Christian engagement with
the violent systems of the world.
