An Excellent Study in Christian Peace Thinking Oct 18, 2004
Cahill's volume is a well researched and insightful study of Christian views on war and pacifism. She could not possibly offer an exhaustive examination of the subject in a book of such modest size. Nevertheless, what she offers is substancial and balanced in judgement. Her style is engaging and accessible for anyone of moderate intelligence who is interested in this vitally important subject matter. This is a fine work, well worth reading.
Horrible Sep 28, 2003
I had to buy this book for school, Its so boring and horrible. I hate it. Repetitive and just bad. I hope teachers stay away from it. I wish I could give it less than one star.
