Did God Really Command Genocide?: Coming to Terms with the Justice of God (Baker Books, 2014)
This new book, which is an expansion of a chapter in Paul Copan’s bestselling book, Is God a Moral Monster? (Baker, 2011), is the most careful, scholarly examination of this prickly issue. Catholics might not embrace the authors’ “Divine Command Theory” of ethics, but it’s nevertheless a clear analysis of the most troubling “dark passages” of Scripture.
