Item description for Misbegotten Anguish: A Theology and Ethics of Violence by Cheryl Kirk-Duggan...
Overview Cheryl Kirk-Duggan calls on Christians to take seriously how their tradition has participated in violence while preaching against it. She uses theology, ethics, and cultural studies to explore such key issues as war, homicide, suicide, and scapegoating. "Misbegotten Anguish is an exciting and broad study of violence in our culture. Its ethical analysis that includes film, current events, novels, hip hop, and Bible stories has an energetic, crisp style. Kirk-Duggan offers a dialogue between cultural criticism and biblical commentary in a unique way that makes us pay attention to oppressive dynamics of gender, race, class, and sexuality."
