Item description for War and the Gospel by Jean Lasserre...

There could hardly be a more topical book than this for the committed Christian. War and the Gospel does not pose a new problem. The problem is as old as the Christian faith, but it has assumed a greater urgency in our own time. Can a Christian conscientiously take part in modern war, a war that would undoubtedly result in the annihilation of tens of thousands of innocent persons' There have been numerous books and propaganda pamphlets issued on this subject, most of them utopian or idealistic rather than Biblical in viewpoint. It is the Biblical realism of this book that makes it such a deep and prophetic contribution to the subject. "Christian theology should start from the Scriptures, not from preconceived ideas", writes the author, and he adheres firmly to that standpoint throughout. The clarity of the author's exposition, the pertinence of his analysis, the vigour of his convictions and the firmness of his testimony make War and the Gospel a very important contribution to the most urgent question of our time.

Reviews - What do customers think about War and the Gospel?

War and the Gospel  Mar 18, 2003
Lasserre's book, written in 1962, provides a thorough and very readable examination of all relevant New Testament passages and possible pro-war arguments. It contains detailed analyses of the sword at Gethsemane, Romans 12-13, the question of taxes to Caesar, Christ's temptations and suffering, etc. Provides a Christian ethic of relating to the state (re: patriotism, etc.). Also includes discussions of the death penalty and the police. This book provides possibly the best and most compelling case for non-violence for evangelicals. A must-read for all who have avoided this issue and want to delve into it.
