Item Description...
Overview
Many people of faith tend to say that they espouse peace and believe the essence of Micah 6:8, which states that we ought to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God. Theology and Violence introduces the pervasive, stark reality of violence that weaves through general and religious culture in the West: including Scripture, classic literature, and nursery stories; history and politics; music, sports, television and video games; and even theology itself. From this persistently honest analysis, Kirk-Duggan then leads us to explore themes of justice, conflict resolution, holistic and cultural health, and spiritual and theological wellness, as ways to overcome violence today

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Helpful But Flawed  Aug 12, 2008
Recently I worked through a lecture concerning violence for the theology and film class. I have used Cheryl Kirk-Duggan`s text Violence and Theology as a primary aid to survey the conversation. I generally have an appreciation for the insights of feminist and womanist scholars and yet find myself quite frustrated with her limited scope of domestic and sexual violence.
In her section on Sexism as a form of violence (p. 15-17), her portrayal is unidirectional...male to female. As a male I find this to be an ironically violent portrayal men. As a feminist or womanist scholar committed to searching out the suppressed notions and narratives she fails to acknowledge that men too suffer violence at the hands of women. Violence in her definition is that which causes harm (p. 2) and is relational (p.2) and has a breadth of levels including psychological, emotional, mental, attitudinal etc (p. 2). Her feminist convictions here blind her to the violence, using her own definition, that women may do to men in the most intimate of relationships. Not only this, she makes a point to note that heterosexism is a form of violence (p.17), and yet she fails to note that violence (in a plurality of forms) may occur in these same sex relationships (W>W and M>M). Are we to think that homosexual relationships are above violence? I understand that these constitute a minority percentage in domestic violence, but this would seem to have fallen squarely into her womanist hermeneutics. She has missed the opportunity to bring to light the violence that men do to men and women do to women within homosexual relationships.

Phyllis Frus, in her essay Documenting Domestic Violence in American Films contained in J. David Slocums edited volume Violence in American Cinema suggests that `women are batterers too` is a myth created by journalism objectivity. While she is concerned with physical violence she too easily dismisses female to male violence and creates a reverse sexism (thus violence towards men) similar to Kirk-Duggan. Frus does note in passing that 5% of women do hit their partners.

I certainly agree that men likely do more physical violence to women than women to men, but both women have missed the mark by ignoring the complicated landscape of families and relationships present in current society. The irony is that their womanist and feminist hermeneutics that are meant to uncover the suppressed stories of women in particular, and humanity in general, join in the violent suppression of certain voices.
