Reviews - What do customers think about When War Is Unjust: Being Honest in Just-War Thinking?
Just War Accountability Sep 11, 2008
Yoder does well to hold our feet to the fire. He does well as a pacifist not to argue against the Just War Tradition. In the purest sense he upholds it and affirms it for those of us in the tradition. We are not let off the hook with sloppy reasoning. A good, short read.
A concilitory critique of the Just War Tradition Oct 9, 2000
Though a pacifist, John Yoder approaches the Just War tradition on its own terms and respectfully outlines the questions raised by the tradition itself. This is a must read for anyone seeking to apply the Just War Tradition into their own lifestyle and politics.
