CWRlive Event: Brad Jersak interviews Derek Flood on "Disarming Scripture"

A God of love and genocide? For many Christians the problem of violence in Scripture can result in a crisis of faith--especially when we see how such passages have been used throughout history to justify horrific bloodshed in God's name.

Moving beyond typical conservative and liberal approaches, which seek either to defend or whitewash over violence in the Bible, Derek Flood's Disarming Scripture takes a surprising and compelling approach: Learning to read the Bible like Jesus did.

In this inaugural CWRlive event, Brad Jersak, author of 'A More Christlike God,' interviewed Derek Flood in order to explore this creative approach which interprets biblical violence texts through Christlike eyes.
