Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a condition most people have heard of—including those outside of the psychiatric community. Moral injury is much lesser-known, but professionals in psychology, military studies, chaplaincy, and moral philosophy have begun researching this emerging notion. Through interpretations of biblical texts, especially war-related narratives and ritual descriptions from the Old Testament, The Bible and Moral Injury explores what happens when we read biblical stories of war and violence through the lens of moral injury in addition to exploring how the study of those biblical texts and their interpretation can contribute to the emerging work on moral injury.
