Ignoring The Bible's Violent Verses

Patrick Allitt has written a review, for the American Conservative magazine, of Philip Jenkins' challenging new book Laying Down the Sword: Why We Can’t Ignore the Bible’s Violent Verses.

The fact that this review is published in a conservative publication is significant in that it may encourage thinking conservatives to take another look at what is happening within the Republican party presently.  This blogger also wonders if any of those thinking conservatives will be prompted to take a fully skeptical view of Christianity and rightly conclude that there is no evidence for its truth.  Perhaps that giant step is asking too much at this time.
