Description: The Old Testament contains numerous textually sanctioned acts of violence attributed to both God and humans. These depictions of 'virtuous' violence pose tremendous moral and theological challenges, especially considering how these texts have been used to harm people and justify violence. Seibert confronts these challenges directly.
