AMERICA AND ITS GUNS
A Theological Exposé

The Rev. Atwood, an avid hunter, contends that one cannot understand the 30,000 American gun deaths per year apart from our national myth and he cautions that an absolute trust in guns and violence morphs easily into idolatry. Having spent 36 years fighting against easy access to fi rearms, he uses his experience and theological understanding to document how Americans have been deceived into believing that the tools of violence, whether in war or in the bedside stand, will provide security.
