War, Peace, and Christianity: Questions and Answers from a Just-War Perspective
By J. Daryl Charles and Timothy J. Demy
With issues of war and peace at the forefront of current events, an informed Christian response is needed. This timely volume answers 105 questions from a just-war perspective, offering thoughtful yet succinct answers.
Ranging from the theoretical to the practical, the volume looks at how the just-war perspective relates to the philosopher, historian, statesman, theologian, combatant, and individual—with particular emphases on its historical development and application to contemporary geopolitical challenges. Forgoing ideological extremes, Charles and Demy give much attention to the biblical teaching on the subject as they provide moral guidance.
