Wednesday Giveaway - Show Them No Mercy
In this week’s giveaway, Show Them No Mercy, four
contributors discuss evangelical views on genocide in the Old Testament.
These difficult passages are often seen as in tension with
other Biblical texts, especially when contrasted with Jesus’ teachings in the
New Testament. And while the challenge such accounts pose, ethically,
theologically, and hermeneutically, are significant, all four contributors
affirm those accounts as the word of God, and so are committed to wrestling
with that tension.
In typical Counterpoints format, this book explores four distinct views about the Old Testament command of God to exterminate the Canaanite
population, as well as what that implies about continuity between the Old and
Those four points of view are:
* Strong Discontinuity - C . S. Cowles
* Moderate Discontinuity -Eugene H. Merrill
* Spiritual Continuity - Tremper Longman III
* Eschatological Continuity - Daniel L. Gard
