Book Description Harper & Row, San Francisco, 1987. Hardcover. First English Language Edition. 243p. A hardcover book in acceptable condition with a dustjacket in good condition. Extensive highlighting and underlining throughout. However, the cover is in very good condition and the binding is tight. The dustjacket has a few small tears at the top. Spine faded. Otherwise intact. Schwager rejects the view of God in the Old Testament as a violent Being, and instead traces the themes of condemnation of violence in both Testaments.

Book Description Harper & Row Pub., San Francisco, 1987. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. Hardcover, Perspectives, Notes. Book builds upon the celebrated theory of Rene Girard's scapegoat mechanism, which asserts that violence is at the root of all human society - in this case the theory is tested and validated as Schwager applies it to the Bible. Controversial. Boot has a tiny spot or two on the bottom edge - a tight copy. Dust jacket shows a small tear at rear top fore edge corner otherwise a bright, attractive dust jacket. Scarce.
