Michael Kimpan posted this clip from an upcoming documentary entitled Hellbound.  In it, theological provocateur Brian McLaren asks an important question:  Is God violent?  In Anabaptist/Mennonite circles this isn’t a unique question.  It’s been asked and answered, most notably by J. Denny Weaver (The Nonviolent Atonement) and John Howard Yoder.  What’s exciting for me is that people from outside the Anabaptist/Mennonite faith tradition(s) are starting to ask the same questions and are coming to similar, if not the same, conclusions.

Check out McLaren’s clip!   How do you answer the question: Is God violent?
