This provocative and timely primer on the just war tradition connects just war to the concrete practices and challenges of the Christian life. Daniel Bell explains that the point is not simply to know the just war tradition but to live it even in the face of the tremendous difficulties associated with war. He shows how just war practice, if it is to be understood as a faithful form of Christian discipleship, must be rooted in and shaped by the fundamental convictions and confessions of the faith. The book includes a foreword by an Army chaplain who has served in Iraq and study questions for group use.
Daniel M. Bell Jr. (PhD, Duke University) is professor of theological ethics at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia, South Carolina. He has worked extensively with both retired and active duty military personnel on the just war tradition. Bell is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church and the author of Liberation Theology after the End of History.

He compares his model of Just War (CF) to a Secular idea of Just War (PPC). He builds his arguement using Greek Phylosophy and Early Church Theology. It is a great look into how this arguement is built, but I do not feel he makes his point in the end.
