Product Description

Lisa Sowle Cahill examines the issues surrounding the meaning of being a disciple of Jesus as it relates to pacifism and just war. She brings together strands from church history, biblical scholarship, and theology to show how Jesus' words led to both pacifism and just war theory. Landing on the side of pacifism, Cahill argues for the ideal of the kingdom of God brought near at the Sermon on the Mount. Lisa Sowle Cahill is Professor of Christian Ethics at Boston College.

Publisher's Description

The author examines the theological bases of just war theory and pacifism, espcially in the light of the concept of God, as that motif illuminates Chrsitian discipleship. Differences between the theory of just war and the practice of pacifism are highlighted in the overview of the history of Christian thought on the subject, and the inclusiveness of the ideal of the kingdom for pacifism is emphasized.
