edited by Arthur F. Holmes, this second edition of War and Christian Ethics: Classic and Contemporary Readings on the Morality of War is full of wonderful theological, Biblical, and philosophical insight into war.
it’s a large and difficult topic to talk about. the questions raised during such a conversation are many, and may include, but are not limited to…
should all Christians be pacifists?
how does a Christian soldier feel about killing in combat?
some people use the phrase “just war.” is there such a thing?
does God favor some nations over other nations?
with writings from Plato, Augustine, Martin Luther, Menno Simons, Rowan Williams, and many others, War and Christian Ethics covers a significant period of time and a diverse range of points of view. it’s a wonderful book for exploring philosophy and Christian thought exploring the topic of war.
