New Studies in Education: The God of the Old Testament in Relation to War


by Marion J. Benedict 1927

THE problem is to determine, by a detailed study of the idea of God in each Old Testament writing, what tendencies toward war or peace might be encouraged in persons taught to accept such a conception.1 This requires an investigation, not only of God's direct or indirect use of warfare, but also of the degree of impartiality in His treatment of different nations, the quality of His attitudes toward men, and His methods in dealing with them. Religious educators have seldom given major consideration to the influence of Biblical material upon attitudes toward war. This study aims to enable them more readily to select and treat Old Testament material in harmony with some consistent purpose in this regard.
