Reading O'Connor's "A Good Man is Hard to Find" is a start for your understanding of how violence leads to salvation.  You may also wish to read some criticisms of this story and others as well as O'Connor's biography.

Also, do not neglect to check the Q & A section under the heading of Flannery O'Connor which provides insights into the writer's motivations for writing and her perspective on spiritualty.
