U.S. War-culture, Sacrifice and Salvation

Despite the massive growth of the military industrial complex in the U.S., the sacred canopy of war as ‗a necessary sacrifice‘ obfuscates the pernicious reality of U.S. war-culture. This book theologically explores and ethically interrogates sacrificial frameworks and assumptions that electrify and normalize war-culture in the post-9/11 period of the U.S. It questions whether theological sacrificial frameworks may be rehabilitated, and if it is possible to “detranscendentalize” war.
