Comments:

"This volume addresses an interesting and important area of applied ethics: It deals with practical issues of public policy, religious responsibility, civic duty, and social justice. The essays make provocative reading and should appeal to a wide audience." -- LONNIE D. KLIEVER

War & Christian Ethics

War: A Primer for Christians by Joseph L. Allen

Comments:

"I strongly recommend this valuable book." -- JAMES F. CHILDRESS

"Joseph Allen's War: A Primer for Christians is just that: a succinct, fair-minded, wonderfully reasoned, and accessible account of the major Christian traditions on war -- Just War, Holy War, and the Pacifist renunciation of violence. His book is also a primer in the further sense, that it will prime the pump for further discussion and debate as to when wars are just and how a nation might keep the means employed under restraints. The book is a treasure for use in the college classroom and with lay groups in the churches." -- WILLIAM F. MAY

"Admirably and readably clarifies the connections and contrasts that have fueled much recent moral debate." -- JAMES TURNER JOHNSON
