Holy Resilience: The Bible’s Traumatic Origins

Author: David M. Carr

In this work, David M. Carr reads the Bible through the lens of contemporary trauma theory. He shows how so much of the Biblical literature arises from communities reeling from traumatic events, trying to make sense of it all, and putting their lives back together. Only when we understand this aspect of the origins of the Bible, can we understand the message it presents to us. Carr’s book is easy to read, but mind-blowing in its implications.
