My two recent books have referenced René Girard’s Mimetic theory. If you want to learn more about this theory, and why it is so important for understanding life, Scripture, and ourselves, below is a video I recorded about all of this last year.
The video is an hour long, so grab a drink and a bowl of popcorn.
And yes, my video recording and editing ability is almost Hollywood quality. But at least you can see what I look like and where I do all my writing and podcast recording…
I mention some of the information from this video in the following two books:
Also, if you listen to my One Verse Podcast, you might have noticed that some of these themes came up as I worked through Genesis 2-4.
And if you want to read more about this theory, I recommend you start with the following:
- Saved from Sacrifice by S. Mark Heim
- Violence Unveiled by Gil Bailie
- Reading the Bible with Rene Girard, edited by Michael Hardin
