And who is my neighbor?
Christians confess the Bible as the Good Book, the perfect guide for becoming loving and holy, just like Jesus. And yet, that same book describes God commanding the Israelites to kill every Canaanite living in the Promised Land.
How are we to understand the Bible as the Good Book when it depicts God commanding actions like genocide?
How are we to reconcile this narrative with the God revealed in Jesus Christ, the God who taught us to love our enemies?
In this bold new book, Randal Rauser defends a novel approach to the Canaanite genocide, one that remains faithful to our deepest moral intuitions even as it is guided by the conviction that Jesus calls us to love all our neighbors.
And the Canaanite is our neighbor.
