Publishers Description

Based on the debates of bishops, church councils, and scholars who reflected on policy alternatives and invoked theological and ethical perspectives on the Gulf crisis, "Lines in the Sand" focuses on moral issues surrounding the Persian Gulf War. Alan Geyer and Barbara Green present a penetrating case study of foreign policy, military policy, moral argument, and religious discourse, while arguing that the "just war" tradition offers only partial aid for Christian reflection in matters of war and peace.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lines in the Sand: Justice and the Gulf War?

"Just war" doctrine with historical context  Mar 27, 2001
The authors apply the Christian doctrine of a "just war," together with the often neglected historical context, to arrive at conclusions quite different from those presented by major media. In the opinion of this Muslim, the Christian doctrine seems very similar to Islamic teaching regarding issues of war, peace, and the treatment of non-combatants. Indeed, Islam may help fill some of the gaps the authors found in applying the Christian doctrine. I recommend the book highly to those seeking to investigate the morality of the Gulf War, or simply to get a good introduction to it.
