Fr Baron refers to Girard and the unveiling of scapegoating violence
We must keep reminding folks who come visiting that we have a "must read" Girardian side bar. Please scroll over and check out these books and further down are some links to great articles that explain and go into detail about scapegoating violence and mimetic theory.
Here are 2 Girard books and 1 from our friend and mentor Gil Bailie:
I See Satan Fall Like Lightning
The Girard Reader
This is serious stuff but if you are serious about the bible you must be serious about the violence it unveils. The bible reveals Love in as much as it unveils our violence.
