Consuming Passion - why the killing of Jesus really matters

Consuming Passion - why the killing of Jesus really matters

Abstract

In the wake of public concerns about the relationship between religion and terror, this book raises questions about how some church teaching about the death of Jesus could be linked to the approval of violence.

Consuming Passion: Why the Killing of Jesus Really Matters, contains essays by a group of British, American and Australian writers which suggest that some popular misunderstandings about the meaning of the death of Jesus Christ may reinforce conflict, division and suffering in today’s world.

The collection of diverse essays shows that theology is not an obscure academic matter or an issue of concern only to a particular religious in-group.
