sacksFormer Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks explains his new book – ‘Not in God’s name: Confronting religious violence.’

The book tackles the thorny issue of religious violence, at a time when it is prevalent across the Middle East in particular.

Sacks tackles conflicts which claim to be committed in the name of God, delving into their theological underpinning, whilst searching for solutions.

He drills into human nature, using a range of social, scientific and theological theories to identify what drives a tendency to violence, and how this can be broken down.

The book will be published in the UK on 11 June, and will cost £20.00.
