Opis: Militant Christianity - Alice Beck Kehoe

Militant Christianity has an extensive history, tracing from Indo-European conquests in the Bronze Age, four thousand years ago, to the AD 312 victory of the ruthless Roman emperor Constantine, and beyond. Indo-Europeans' ethos of war as the natural human condition and glorifying battle persisted through the Protestant Reformation, colonization of America, capitalist industrialization and today's 'marketing era' promoting competition. The book is written as a lively chronicle making clear the astounding power of the ancient cultural tradition embedding our language, and the real battle we face to contain this 'Christian' jihad. "A well-written, well researched nook on the religious right that does what no other book on the religious right does. As the paleontologist Teilhard de Chardin said, 'Nothing is intelligible outside of history.' It took an anthropologist like Kehoe to go to the historical, cultural, and anthropological roots of the complex Christian Right phenomenon. This book is useful for classes in political science, sociology, anthropology, religious studies, law and in other disciplines where the major influence of the religious right is now being discussed." - Daniel C. Maguire, Professor of Religious Studies, Marquette University"Militant Christianity is a remarkable guide to understanding the origins and contemporary consequences of the worldview that the militant Christian right uses to legitimize its actions and through which it reproduces itself. Alice Kehoe skillfully blends historical and cultural analyses in an exceptionally compelling and accessible narrative. Militant Christianity is a must read for anyone interested in better understanding the myriad ways that the model of the warrior culture embraced by militant Christianity penetrates American politics and jeopardizes peace and security, and in finding constructive paths forward." - Robert A.
