2016 Blue Ocean Summit Talk: Introducing René Girard, by Emily Swan

Emily Swan provides an introduction to the work of René Girard, a theorist who developed scapegoat theory—a helpful lens for understanding violence from a biblical perspective. The talk was originally given at the Blue Ocean Summit—a national gathering of pastors, leaders, and friends of the Blue Ocean Church Network—held November 18–19, 2016, at Sanctuary Community Church, in Iowa City, IA.
