Jerusalem: City of War, City of Peace

“The subject of the Bible is violence. And it’s rooted in Jerusalem. … It’s the place where all the warring armies of the empires intersected.” With those words, author James Carroll begins his reflection on what the city of Jerusalem means for Jews, Christians and Muslims. It is, he says, sacred to all three traditions and crucial to the human condition;  it is the history of armies coming to Jerusalem and slaughtering people that produced in those people a vision for something different, without ever shying away from the human capacity for violence. Explore Carroll’s deep thoughtfulness about the history and meaning of Jerusalem, captured on video and archived on the Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly site. Also watch a four-minute news segment aired on May 13, 2011, and read an excerpt from Carroll’s book, Jerusalem, Jerusalem: How the Ancient City Ignited Our Modern World, posted here.
