Religion and Violence: Dr. Richard Hess responds to Dr. Avalos

Dr. Richard Hess
Finally available on high quality video is my 2012 presentation on my theory of religion and violence (a summary of Fighting Words: The Origins of Religious Violence [2005) at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver.

This particular presentation is notable because  Dr. Richard Hess, a well-known evangelical biblical scholar and apologist at Denver Seminary, responds at 1:06:58, and I respond at 1:26:01 to him and others.

I don’t think Dr. Hess was successful in defending biblical violence, but you can judge for yourselves.
