Product Description

Must Christians always turn the other cheek and resist violence? Is it ever justifiable for Christians to retaliate in the face of evil? Philosopher Robert Brimlow struggles with these questions in What About Hitler? Brimlow skillfully integrates meditations on Scriptural passages, personal reflections on his own challenges to live nonviolently, and a hard-hitting philosophical examination of pacifism and just-war doctrine. Both Christian pacifists and defenders of just-war theory will appreciate this book. In addition, What About Hitler? will appeal to those interested in Christian ethics and discipleship, including students, pastors, and laity. Featured in softcover with 272 pages from Brazos Press.

    The method of argument used is flawed.

    In many ways, the author's method critiqued just-war theory can also be used to critique pacifism. A broader picture of situations is not given, and it is closer to a secular moralistic book instead of a theological one in its content. The view and thoughts is very bookish. The meditation before each chapter seems more like a way to manipulate the reader into the author's view. Clearly, the meditation is closer to a process of formulating of thoughts instead of authentic prayers. Jesus had commanded "But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you."
