What is the appropriate Christian attitude toward war? According to Ron Wells, there are three possible answers to this question: that of the pacifist, who condemns war itself as un-Christian; that of the crusader, who views any war fought by a Christian as a war fought in defense of Christiantity; and that of the just-war theorists, who evaluates each war on the merits of its case. With these possible answers in mind, the contributors carefully evaluate eight major American wars. By re-examining America's wars, the contributors are setting up a dialogue between past and present.
