Brent A. Strawn, William Ragsdale Cannon Distinguished Professor of Old Testament at the Candler School of Theology, remembers the Sandy Hook shooting and considers how the Bible both contains and reframes violence.
On March 15–16, 2019, Fuller’s School of Theology hosted a panel of Biblical scholars to discuss how the Bible might speak to American gun culture. The panelists reflected on violence as a tool for dominance, toxic masculinity, “thoughts and prayers,” mental health issues, and various other cultural factors that create the particular gun culture in the United States today.
