Sacks & Violence

book cover image Not In God's Name

Why does religion seem to beget violence? A best-selling rabbi tackles a global issue.  Monotheism makes sense, historically, says rabbi Jonathan Sacks. But, he adds, it is hard to take on board at a deeper level.

If there is only one creator, there is only one creation; we are all in this together. Yet, something in our DNA has hard-wired us to see the world as an innocent "us" versus a guilty "them".

Not In God's Name is Sacks' attempt to deal with one of the major issues of our time.
