OWT 14: The Potencial for Conflict and Peace
Do religion and violence belong together?
Are religion and violence inescapably intertwined? Or is violence often abusively legitimised by religion? Theologians from different continents give differentiated answers from a Christian perspective. The role and function of the Bible's depictions of violence, how violence was legitimised and practised by the church, but also criticised, what the underlying causes of religiously motivated violence are and how violence influences the relationship between the religions. The contributions also describe examples of church peace and reconciliation work that inspire hope for overcoming violence.
