Many people of faith tend to say that they espouse peace and believe the essence of Micah 6:8, which states that we ought to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God. Violence and Theology introduces the pervasive, stark reality of violence that weaves through general and religious culture in the West: including Scripture, classic literature, and nursery stories; history and politics; music, sports, television and video games; and even theology itself. From this persistently honest analysis, Kirk-Duggan then leads us to explore themes of justice, conflict resolution, holistic and cultural health, and spiritual and theological wellness, as ways to overcome violence today.
