In this robust and well timed e-book, probably the most sought after and authoritative non secular leaders of our time tackles the phenomenon of spiritual extremism and violence dedicated within the identify of God. If faith is perceived as being a part of the matter, Rabbi Sacks argues, then it should also shape a part of the answer. while faith turns into a zero-sum conceit—that is, my faith is the one correct route to God, accordingly your faith is by way of definition wrong—and everyone is prompted via what Rabbi Sacks calls “altruistic evil,” violence among peoples of alternative ideals seems to be the single traditional outcome.
yet via an exploration of the roots of violence and its courting to faith, and using groundbreaking biblical research and interpretation, Rabbi Sacks indicates that religiously encouraged violence has as its resource misreadings of biblical texts on the middle of all 3 Abrahamic faiths. by means of having a look anew on the ebook of Genesis, with its foundational tales of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, Rabbi Sacks bargains a thorough rereading of the various Bible’s seminal tales of sibling contention: Cain and Abel, Isaac and Ishmael, Jacob and Esau, Joseph and his brothers, Rachel and Leah.
“Abraham himself,” writes Rabbi Sacks, “sought to be a blessing to others despite their religion. that concept, overlooked for lots of of the intervening centuries, is still the best definition of Abrahamic religion. it's not our activity to beat or convert the area or implement uniformity of trust. it truly is our job to be a blessing to the realm. using faith for political ends isn't righteousness yet idolatry . . . To invoke God to justify violence opposed to the blameless isn't really an act of sanctity yet of sacrilege.” here's an eloquent demand humans of goodwill from all faiths and none to face jointly, confront the spiritual extremism that threatens to ruin us, and claim: now not in God’s identify.
