E 128 When Is War Justified?


When is war justified? and when is it just? Christians have explored this question down the centuries; but recent events have radically changed the nature of war and therefore the way this question might be answered.

This new study takes into account both earlier arguments and the new context. It sets out the issues with great clarity and shows how Christians can make a prophetic and distinctive contribution to contemporary debate. It will be essential reading for anyone concerned to relate the gospel to contemporary society.
