Pleasure and grief, in violence

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

Abstract

Given that violence abounds in scriptures, how may we, as interpreters, proceed? In this chapter, I move beyond identifying and explaining the presence and the kinds of violence there are in the bible, toward coming to terms with the web on which violence tangles, or to use more Pacific Island images, the mat on which violence sits, and the sea that carries violence across. The aim of this chapter is to make violence understandable without making biblical violence, whether in the name of God and of God’s chosen people or otherwise, acceptable. I propose to do this by sketching the interrelation between violence, pleasure and grief.
