    A text of resistance to a prevalent modern myth

    William Cavanaugh traces the history of rise and use of the word "religion" in the modern world. He argues convincingly that our current use of the category of religion arose and continues to function to justify and rationalize state violence over-against the violence of the "other" which is then defined as irrational and unjust. Provactively, Cavanaugh suggests that the definition of religion ought to be "that for which you will kill." This book is a must read for anyone who is interested in questions concerning politics and religion or state violence or so-called religious violence.
