|Fighting Words: The Origins of Religious Violence Price: $28.00 Write a review | No reviews for this product.|
Comparing violence in religious and nonreligious contexts, Prof. Hector Avalos makes the compelling argument that if we condemn violence caused by scarce resources as morally objectionable, then we must consider even more objectionable violence provoked by alleged scarcities that cannot be proven to exist. Moreover, he shows how many modern academic biblical scholars and scholars of religion maintain the value of sacred texts - despite their violence. This serious philosophical examination of the roots of religious violence adds much to our understanding of a perennial source of widespread human suffering.
