Show Them No Mercy: 4 Views on God and Canaanite Genocide (Counterpoints) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The "Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on important theological issues. These spirited discussions by authors who have agreed to disagree as they advocate their points of view will broaden your understanding, regardless of your own position. You'll find these stimulating books invaluable for sermon preparation, personal and group study, and keeping current on key theological issues.

Synopsis:

A discussion of various contemporary evangelical views of genocide in the Old Testament.

Christians are often shocked to read that Yahweh, the God of the Israelites, commanded the total destruction--all men, women, and children--of the ethnic group know as the Canaanites. This seems to contradict Jesus' command in the New Testament to love your enemies and do good to all people. How can Yahweh be the same God as the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ? What does genocide in the Bible have to do with the politics of the 21st century?

This book explores, in typical Counterpoints format, the Old Testament command of God to exterminate the Canaanite population and what that implies about continuity between the Old and New Testaments.

The four points of view presented on the continuity of the Testaments are:

- Strong Discontinuity -C . S. Cowles

- Moderate Discontinuity -Eugene H. Merrill

- piritual Continuity -Tremper Longman III

- Eschatological Continuity -Daniel L. Gard

Synopsis:

A Counterpoints book that discusses various contemporary views held by evangelicals on God's command to the Israelites to destroy utterly the Canaanites and how each view sees the relationship between this God of the Israelites and the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has commanded us to love our enemies.
