For many this presents a crisis of faith -- especially when we see how these very passages have been used throughout history to justify horrific violence and bloodshed in Gods name.

Moving beyond typical conservative and liberal approaches, which seek to either defend or whitewash over violence in the Bible, Disarming Scripture takes a surprising yet compelling approach: Learning to read the Bible like Jesus did.
