Which is the Most Violent: the Bible or the Quran?

I came across this interesting piece from NPR (America’s equivalent to Australia’s ABC) and their program ‘All Things Considered.’ It is a transcript of a program they ran comparing the violence in the Bible with that found in the Quran. You can hear or read it here.

This resounds with the question of the violent God raised by Brian McLaren in his book A New Kind of Christianity, about which NPR also did a porgram. You can read the article here.
