Read full description of the books:
Just war, pacifism, weapons of mass destruction, war on terror, preemptive war. These phrases highlight recent world events that have brought questions about the morality of war into sharp relief. Instead of advocating a particular approach to war, War and Christian Ethics offers a variety of Christian perspectives, enabling readers to make up their own minds about what they believe.
This collection of primary source materials contains texts from many influential classic and contemporary writers that are crucial to the development of Christian thought on war. From Plato to Augustine, Thomas Aquinas to Martin Luther, Reinhold Niebuhr to Paul Ramsey, the book covers a broad range of writers. The second edition includes new selections from Rowan Williams, George Weigel, and Duane Friesen.
