Cover Story IC70: From Herod to ISIS through Christ | Incommunion

Cover Story IC70: From Herod to ISIS through Christ | Incommunion: The essay asks rhetorically “is violence—individual or large-scale––a possible Orthodox response?” To shape his answer, Fr.

John points to the historical record and it’s stunning silent testimony that “there was no record of retribution.”
