War and Peace in the Bhagavad Gita

http://www.nybooks.com/articles/2014/12/04/war-and-peace-bhagavad-gita/

Becoming an atheist was for me a two step process: first I rejected the Christianity I was baptised and raised in, then I realized that all religions had their inconsistencies, their compromises, their tendency to lose their center by telling people what they wanted to hear, even as it distorted and even contradicted the original message. But because of my history and location, my thoughts focused on Christianity. So it is good to read an analysis of how another major religious text has been handled throughout history.
