COV&R-Bulletin No. 5 (Oct. 1993)

André Lascaris, To Do the Unexpected: Reading Scripture in Northern Ireland. Coleraine, 1993, 80 pp (forthcoming).

This booklet is a fruit of nineteen years of peace work in Northern Ireland. It aims at bible groups in Northern Ireland and the Republic. It deals with questions such as how to read a biblical text and how to read such a text in a group. It opens up a discussion on twelve biblical texts which play a role in the situation of violence in Northern Irleand. It comments on these texts, deals with the question of violence in Scripture and briefly explains Girard's mimetic theory.
