"This bold new statement on the nonviolence of God challenges long-standing assumptions of divine violence in atonement theology, the violent God pictured in the Old Testament, and the supposed violence of God in Revelation. J. Denny Weaver argues that since God is supremely revealed in Jesus, the nonviolence of Jesus most truly reflects the character of God. According to Weaver, the way Christians live--Christian ethics--is an ongoing expression of theology. Consequently, he sets forth positive images of the reign of God made visible in the narrative of Jesus--nonviolent practice, forgiveness and restorative justics, standing up against racism and sexism--to help Christians more faithfully display God's shalom in our violent world." -- back cover
