This collection of essays had its origin in a conference on violence in the New Testament held at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. The authors are with one exception from South Africa and the Netherlands. They aim "to contribute to the recent scholarly debate about the interconnections between violence and monotheistic religions by analysing the role of violence in the NT as well as by offering some hermeneutical perspectives on violence as it is articulated in the earliest Christian writings" (ix).
