3 comments on “The Blues and the Myth of Redemptive Violence

  1. Great post. Certainly thought-provoking. In addition to the risk of superficial spiritualising of apparently God-sanctioned OT violence, there is of course the challenge of suggesting that redemptive violence is (false) myth whilst embracing the God-stated need for redemptive violence in the form of the Cross.

  2. Good piece here – covers all the arguments! Despite that, I still love watching the so called ‘redemptive violence’ in the movies such as Rambo, The Equalizer etc that hit the cinemas and small screen!
