Girard's theories on violence, civilization, and religion have intrigued and confounded scholars in the humanities for almost two decades. In this book, Williams has provided the first comprehensive application of Girard's thought to the whole Bible. What emerges from all of this is a proposal for a biblical theology of the nonviolent God.
