The philosophical, ethical, and religious implications of a life of non-violence are explored in this "short, simple introduction to Christian pacifism" (Booklist). How might Christians look on the world differently if they truly believed that God's love is stronger than our fears? And when faced with the violence of our world, are there any options open to the Christian believer other than the impulse toward patriotic unity and a determination to exact "an eye for an eye"? In fresh, confessional language, religious philosopher John Roth shares his convictions about Christian pacifism, inviting others to consider this approach, all the while humbly admitting the difficulties, pressures, and consequences that are inherent in deciding to live without harming others. This book of hope, faith, and peace is a must-read for anyone concerned about the endless cycles of wars and violence, and the possibility that God's love is stronger than our society's current answers.
