God Who Fights. The War Tradition in Holy Scriptures
1993 0-7734-1653-6
This volume argues that `the God who fights' is only on God's side. The God of the Bible acts as both protector and adversary. Such two-sidedness emerges in the Exodus and Judges periods, and passes into Israel's worship. As in the Exodus and Exile, Christ embraced both conquest and defeat, and the Christian life likewise embraces victory and defeat, united in the loving grace of the triune God.
