內容簡介


當代最受景仰且權威的宗教領袖之一:猶太拉比Jonathan Sacks,在這本強而有力且即時的書中,處理了宗教極端主義以上帝之名行暴力之實的這個現象。作者認為,既然宗教被視為暴力問題的一部份,那麼解決之道也藏在宗教當中。

當「我的宗教是唯一通向上帝的正確之路,而你的宗教則徹頭徹尾是個錯誤」這樣的零和概念產生時,作者所稱的「利他式邪惡」在人群中被激化,不同信仰之間所產生的暴力,便成為無可避免的後果。 

透過探索暴力之源與它和宗教的關係,並且利用開創式的聖經分析與詮釋,作者告訴讀者,宗教式暴力的根源,來自於誤讀了以亞伯拉罕信仰為中心的三大宗教(基督、伊斯蘭與猶太)的經文。以全新的方式看待三種宗教的故事其共同的來源〈創世紀〉,作者重讀了聖經中兄弟(姊妹)鬩牆的重要故事,例如:該隱與亞伯、以撒與以實瑪利、雅各與以掃、約瑟與他的兄弟們、拉結與利亞。

作者大聲疾呼,不管你有沒有宗教信仰,我們都要面對威脅著將我們全數摧毀的宗教極端主義,他力稱,暴力絕對不是「以上帝之名」。

In this powerful and timely book, one of the most admired and authoritative religious leaders of our time tackles the phenomenon of religious extremism and violence committed in the name of God. If religion is perceived as being part of the problem, Rabbi Sacks argues, then it must also form part of the solution.

When religion becomes a zero-sum conceit—i.e., my religion is the only right path to God, therefore your religion is by definition wrong—and when individuals are motivated by what Rabbi Sacks calls “altruistic evil,” violence between peoples of different beliefs appears to be the inevitable outcome.

But through an exploration of the roots of violence and its relationship to religion, and employing groundbreaking biblical analysis and interpretation, Rabbi Sacks shows that religiously inspired violence has as its source misreadings of biblical texts at the heart of all three Abrahamic faiths. By looking anew at the book of Genesis, with its foundational stories of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, Rabbi Sacks offers a radical rereading of many of the Bible’s seminal stories of sibling rivalry: Cain and Abel, Isaac and Ishmael, Jacob and Esau, Joseph and his brothers, Rachel and Leah.
 
Here is an eloquent call for people of goodwill from all faiths and none to stand together, confront the religious extremism that threatens to destroy us all, and declare: Not in God’s Name.
