Editorial Reviews

Review

“An excellent study of the complex relationship between religion and violence. . . . Highly recommended.”
(J. R. Asher, Georgetown College Choice 2012-12-01)

From the Inside Flap

"From Jeremiad to Jihad is an ambitious volume. The selections here introduce new perspectives on the intersection of religious institutions and American culture. Whereas the subject of just war has largely been the provenance of religious and philosophical studies, with some input from international relations and political science, the authors of this volume have brought methods and questions from the study of history to bear on the discussion. Carlson and Ebel have pulled together a significant work that fosters new conversations between scholars interested in just war and American religious history." - John Kelsay, author of Arguing the Just War in Islam

“Why is America, one of the world’s most religious societies, also one of the most violent? In a sophisticated, thoughtful and accessible manner, the essays in this collection provide an important examination of the complexities of American character that sees the sacred as sanctioning violence and allows violence to be sanctified.” - Mark Juergensmeyer, author of Terror in the Mind of God: The Global Rise of Religious Violence

“This is a stunning collection of essays—the single most comprehensive and wide-ranging set yet prepared. With “jeremiad” and “jihad” as their guiding tropes, the contributors brilliantly trace the life of this rhetorical strain. This volume is ideally suited for courses in religion and history as well as anyone interested in the role of religious violence in American culture and life.” - Harry S. Stout, author of Upon the Altar of the Nation: A Moral History of the Civil War

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A fine survey of ideas and opinions about violence in our culture and in our religious heritage. The articles were thought-provoking, and it was hard to put it down -- but I had to think about each article for a while before going on to the next one.
