Item description for Peacemaking Christians: The Future of Just Wars, Pacifism, and Nonviolent Resistance by Michael K. Duffey...
Overview Over the past fifteen hundred years the Catholic tradition has developed a set of clear moral conditions intended to restrain war-making. Today these conditions face enormous challenges in the radically changed, contemporary context of modern warfare. In light of both modern warfare and modern Catholic teaching, Michael Duffey examines and assesses three traditional Christian approaches to peace and war. He studies the limits and possibilities of the just war tradition, evaluates the often dismissed position of pacifism, and illuminates the often overlooked power of nonviolent resistance.
