Warfare in the Old Testament has long posed a problem for Christian readers. Does it offer a justification for war on religious grounds? And how can the warlike God of the Old Testament be the same divinity as that revealed in the New Testament, the God of love incarnate in Jesus Christ?

Warfare in the Old Testament has long posed a problem for Christian readers. Does it offer a justification for war on religious grounds?

The theme of divine war is not limited to the Old Testament historical . He also serves as fellow in Old Testament Studies at the St. George's Centre for Biblical and Public Theology in Ontario, Canada.

The theme of divine war is not limited to the Old Testament historical books. This book provides helpful biblical, historical, theological, and philosophical reinforcements. This is an excellent resource for the scholar, student, pastor, or Bible student who seeks to know more about the concept of holy war in the Bible.

Almost 40 years old, this book is still insightful and relevant. The violent portrayals of God in the Old Testament are numerous and disturbing

Almost 40 years old, this book is still insightful and relevant. Craigie even makes note of the fact that Christians often teach their children the dire importance of abstaining from all things sexual, while war and violence are rarely stressed. Don't read Song of Songs yet, dear children, but reading violent war stories in books like Joshua is a-okay. 1) This observation of Craigie's is still quite apparent today. The violent portrayals of God in the Old Testament are numerous and disturbing. Although the most disturbing fact is that many Christians are not disturbed by these depictions of a ruthless, bloodthirsty God.

Dr. Craigie is acutely aware of the ethical problems posed by his subject, and his study should be helpful to others who are equally aware of these problems. I am glad to commend this book.

The predominance of war in the Old Testament troubles many Christians. However it is an issue that must be faced, says Peter C. Craigie, because it has serious ramifications for contemporary Christian attitudes about war. Professor Craigie categorizes the problems into two kinds - personal and external. The personal problems arise from the Christian's attempt to grapple with the emphasis on war in a book fundamental to faith.

Peter does an excellent job of expressing the theological and practical problems of the prevalence of war in the Old Testament

Peter does an excellent job of expressing the theological and practical problems of the prevalence of war in the Old Testament. Throughout the entire book he hints at resolutions to these problems, which causes one to be hopeful and continue reading, but then in the last chapters he concedes that he has no real answers. Instead he turns from the problems entirely and instead proposes a Christian perspective on war in light of the Old and New Testaments
