Reviews - What do customers think about Biblical Pacifism?
Highly Disappointed Jul 9, 2005
I was looking for a reasoned, critical examination of the texts that deal with war and peace in an attempt to personally develop a theology of the christian's response to war and violence. My intent was to look at one text from a pacifist view and one from a just-war view.
Biblical Pacifism was my chose text to understand why we should not engage in war. Unfortunately, there was very little exposition of Old or New Testament texts. It was a write espousing Anabaptist and Brethern theology, with very little critical analysis of the scriptures. When something scriptural seemed to contradict his view, it was just dismissed.
A strong, well-reasoned, thought-provoking & versed account Sep 11, 2003
Former professor of theology at Bethany Theological Seminary Dale W. Brown presents a powerful ethical discourse in this revised and expanded second edition of Biblical Pacifism. Professor Brown scrutinizes crucial biblical passages about peace and offers answers to disturbing questions for peace-loving Christians. A strong, well-reasoned, thought-provoking and versed account, Biblical Pacifism is highly recommended reading for devout Christian pacifists, as well as those seeking to come to grips with a Christian perspective of the relationship of war and religion.
