Aggression is ambiguous in our society, according to Kathleen Greider. While giving us strength to fight the world's social ills or to create vital and powerful lives, aggression can also lead to rage and violence. Thus, society has often viewed aggression as evil or sinful. Greider wants Christians to repair their view of aggression and realize that aggression is what can spur them to make the world better. In exploring aggression from feminist, pastoral, and theological perspectives, Greider examines the relationships between violence and vitality, passion and aggression, and finds that Christians can be strong without being destructive.

Kathleen J. Grieder is Professor of Practical Theology, Spiritual Care, and Counseling at Claremont School of Theology in Claremont, California.
