Reviews - What do customers think about War and Christian Ethics: Classic and Contemporary Readings on the Morality of War?

A Good Overview  Mar 12, 2006
This book is a good overview of how Christians can cope with just war. It is interesting and very helpful in understanding Christian Ethics from original text of such teachers as Aquinas, Luther, Calvin just to name a few. Some of the text are rather hard to read, but overall a well put together book to explore this important topic these days.
