Is the only path to shalom through a valley of capricious divine bloodshed?

One of the world’s foremost historical Jesus scholars helps the church and its alumni/ae rise above the greatest of Christian treasons: that everlasting peace can only be achieved through the onslaught of divine violence.

Filmed before a live audience in a workshop setting, professor and author John Dominic Crossan summarizes the essence of his bestselling ‘How To Read The Bible And Still Be A Christian: Struggling with divine violence from Genesis to Revelation’ and shows the way forward for those seeking an authentic Christianity for the 21st century.

Violence Divine is an eight-session DVD-based series, which weeWONDERBOX will be running in two halves (@7.00-9.00pm each Tuesday evening in November, and then the same throughout January).

The basic format for each 1.5 hour session includes chapter breaks and discussion questions related to each 40-minute video segment.

  • 14th Nov:   Sin and Escalatory Violence
  • 21st Nov:   The Heart of the Torah
