ῳ Download $0.00 [ Not in God's Name: Confronting Religious Violence ] Ό By Jonathan Sacks ‗ A Sunday Times London BestsellerAn urgent and authoritative exploration of the roots of religious violence, from one of the world s great contemporary theologians From Sacks s first gut wrenching sentence, the reader has a solid sense that what follows are the deeply thought, carefully weighed words of an impeccable scholar His reading of the Hebrew Bible is astute, illuminating layers of meaning too often missed Sacks is a clear eyed and compelling illuminator, and his methodical deconstruction, which routs out flawed understandings of the Bible, drives us emphatically toward hope, toward a theology that lets go of hate.Barbara Mahany, Chicago TribuneIn his remarkable book, Sacks argues that believers must face the painful facts He is careful to document that wars of religion are not unique to Islam He believes that to persuade religious people of the Abrahamic faiths, arguments against religious violence must be rooted in theology, not in secular ideas alone E J Dionne Jr The Washington PostThe heart of Sackss powerful argument is a compelling exposition of Genesis that suggests an astonishing rereading of the narrative The book is a wondrous and valuable probe of our current world of violence that invites us to rethink and rehear the founding texts that are invoked to fund crusades It points authoritatively toward an alternative practice of public life grounded in a common humanity that subverts all tribal temptations Wise and important Walter Brueggemann, The Christian Century Not in Gods Name is a really important book that I urge you to buy and read It is terrific Fareed Zakaria GPS, CNNIn Not in Gods Name,the brilliant Rabbi Jonathan Sacks argues that ISIS is in fact typical of what we will see in the decades ahead His greatest contribution is to point out that the answer to religious violence is probably going to be found within religion itself.David Brooks, The New York TimesSackss sobering yet soul stirring new book offers an ingenious rereading of Genesis His brilliance as a theologian radiates Irshad Manji, The New York Times Book ReviewSackss analysis reflects an erudite mind fully engaged with philosophy, politics, and social studies of the most rigorous kind It is when he turns his attention and all these resources to a theological engagement with the connection between religious faith and violence that he makes his greatest contribution I cannot think of a important new book for people of faith to read and study together Jonathan Sacks is an enlightening presence for the whole world, and his message resonates today powerfully than ever Michael Jinkins president, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary , Huffington Post An intelligent analysis of old and new connections between religion and violence Sacks tackles this task with the tenderness of a believer and the rigor of a scholar, drawing both on a thorough knowledge of ancient texts and history, and on modern insights such as those of Freud and the French literary critic and authority on sacred violence, Rene Girard The Economist This is a courageous and imaginative book Martha Minow dean, Harvard Law School , The New RamblerSacks believes that Islamic violence, like Jewish and Christian violence, flows from a misunderstanding of sacred text In Not in Gods Name he illuminates a wiser faith and a gentler God Its a perceptive, poignant, and beautifully written book William Saletan, The Wall Street JournalA remarkable exploration of the reasons behind religious violence and solutions for stopping it, through a fascinating and ingenious reinterpretation of the book of Genesis Sackss treatment of Scripture is alone worth a close read A humane, literate, and sincere book, one with something truly new to say Kirkus Reviews starred review Inspired by Isaiahs vision of nations beating their swords into plowshares, Sacks embraces religion as the pathway to peace He unfolds a genuinely inclusive and pacific Abrahamic faith by burrowing into the Hebrew Bible discerning deep themes conducing both to a universal justice between all peoples and a profound sense of Gods particularizing love for diverse covenant communities A much needed antidote to lethal animosities Booklist starred review Sacks turns his prodigious intellect to deconstructing the mechanisms of religious violence He displays his wide learning and empathy in service of an ambitious, ingenious worldview Wed all be wise to listen Publishers WeeklyRabbi Sacks is one of todays most interesting thinkers, writers, and speakers His interventions into the public debate rarely fail to encourage thought, knowledge, and, indeed, wisdom I suspect that this latest book will contribute a significant amount to the ferocious debates around religion and violence in our world today The Spectator London Sacks cant be accused of shirking the big issues In Not in Gods Name he considers a subject that believers of all faiths have a huge difficulty explaining Why do so many insist on advancing their belief in God as a justification for violence It is, as the briefest survey of the headlines will confirm, a timely inquiry Sacks, unsurprisingly, rejects the suggestion that religion itself is what causes the problem, though he does believe that if it is to be solved, theology must play a part The Guardian London A global campaigner for greater religious understanding between all the faiths Sacks is unmistakably a man on a mission, and he is sure that there is plenty we can do, if we find the will His book is one front in that battle The Telegraph London The book makes interesting and valuable points Sacks reminds us that it is wrong to casually conflate orthodox believers with armchair fundamentalists The two approaches to faith are not only different but opposed to one another, he says It is a case well put, and worth hearing The Independent London Not in Gods Name makes an explicit link between religious extremism and the growing gulf between a secular West and a religious world It is a persuasive analysis BBC News From the Hardcover
