In recent years, martyrdom and political violence have been
conflated in the public imagination. Ruben Rosario Rodriguez argues
that martyr narratives deserve consideration as resources for
resisting political violence in contemporary theological
reflection. Underlying the three Abrahamic monotheistic traditions
is a shared belief that God requires liberation for the oppressed,
justice for the victims and, most demanding of all, love for the
political enemy. Christian, Jewish and Muslim martyr narratives
that condone political violence - whether terrorist or
state-sponsored - are examined alongside each religion's canon, in
order to evaluate how central or marginalized these discourses are
within their respective traditions. Primarily a work of Christian
theology in conversation with Judaism and Islam, this book aims to
model religious pluralism and cooperation by retrieving distinctly
Christian sources that nurture tolerance and facilitate
coexistence, while respecting religious difference.
