Westminster John Knox Press Reckoning with Aggression: Theology, Violence, & Vitality

Aggression is ambiguous in our society, according to this new book from Kathleen Greider. While giving us strength to fight the world's social ills or to create vital and powerful lives, aggression also can lead to rage and violence. Thus, society has often viewed aggression as evil or sinful. Greider wants Christians to repair their view of aggression - take away the negative light in which it is often seen - and realize that aggression is what can spur them to make the world better. In exploring aggression from feminist, pastoral, and theological perspectives, Greider examines the relationships between violence and vitality, passion and aggression, and finds that Christians can be strong without being destructive.
