This book questions the ties between Christian notions of salvation and sacrifice, and political, economic, cultural and military sacrificial frameworks and practices, in order to promote deeper understanding of the meaning of our post-9/11 religious and political moment in the United States, and to encourage wiser and more life-giving ways forward as communities of Please click here to ask a question
