About this item

Through insightful introductions and the judicious editing of 60 selections, Christopher Dorn's Peace in Christian Thought and Life captures the great sweep and wide divergences in the two-millennium argument of Christians among themselves over peace, war, violence, and the imperatives of the gospel. From the unyielding idealism of the early Christians to the scarred skepticism of the nuclear era, the book traces the deepening appreciation of human complexity against the perennial vision and pursuit of peace. For those who are wrestling with the complex calculus of war and peace, violence and social justice, Dorn's reader provides both historical breadth and theological depth. [Subject: Religious Studies, Christianity]
