Revelation, The Religions, and Violence examines the basic human dynamics that produce violence and how the diverse experiences of Christianity, Judaism and Islam, as well as Chinese and Indian religions, address this universal problem. Lefebure extends the pathbreaking insights of Rene Girard into a multi-religious context. In particular, he shows how Christianity -- which many accuse of glorifying violence in the crucifixion of Jesus -- really unmasks humanity's violent impulses no matter how sacred the cause they appear to validate. Although historically attitudes toward and encounters among the world religions have been filled with strife, the values and experiences they share can become the bedrock on which to build more humane societies
