Weep Not for Your Children Essays on Religion and Violence

by Lisa Isherwood, Rosemary Radford Ruether

Weep Not for Your Children Essays on Religion and Violence Synopsis

Violence remains endemic in today's society. Religious morality and social prejudice can lead to many acts of violence going unnoticed. 'Weep Not for Your Children' presents a selection of essays that examine the ways in which religion and violence interconnect. The presence of violence in the origins of cultural and religious norms is examined. The essays cover a wide range of examples of violence: from the Holocaust to domestic violence and from the violence created by economic systems to that created by the construction of gender itself. 'Weep Not for Your Children' challenges and provokes the reader to think beyond traditional associations of good and evil.

Weep Not for Your Children Essays on Religion and Violence Press Reviews
