Reviews - What do customers think about Just Peacemaking?
Required Reading for every President Jun 27, 2002
This should be on the coffee table, magazine rack, bookshelf, and waiting room of every serious national leader. Conscientious voters should also read this in order to understand what it takes to make political peace in the world. But Stassen is not merely political, he's actually biblical first of all. He exegetes like a biblical scholar while making applications which only a leading Christian ethicist like he could. Just peacemaking shows that "just war theory" can lead to peace while restraining war, and that passifism is an extremely ACTIVE practice. EXCELLENT!
Great practicle application of the Sermon of the Mount. Apr 18, 1998
Stasson does an incredible job in his ability to interpret and apply the teaching of Jesus to every day life. While often the sermon on the mount is ignored in Christian teaching and literature because so many people find it hard to understand or live up to, Stasson shows how Jesus teachings don't trap people, but rather set them free to break away from the patterns of sin and pain.
