Product Description

Is war inevitable? Is it so woven into the fabric of our being that it always was and always will be? "Early Christians," says Maguire, "were unanimous in opposing this view." They didn't see war as normal but an outrage and even a sacrilege. Maguire argues that later Christians succumbed to the supposed "normalcy" of war and developed what later became known as the "just-war theory," which was actually devised as a deterrent to the rush to war.

Daniel C. Maguire is Professor of Ethics at Marquette University. He also is President of the Religious Consultation on Population, Reproductive Health and Ethics. Among his many books are The Moral Core of Judaism and Christianity, Sacred Energies: When the World's Religions Sit Down to Talk about the Future of Human Life and the Plight of This Planet, and Sacred Choices: The Right to Contraception and Abortion in Ten World Religions.
