Publishers Description The classical just war criteria were helpful in a world of soldiers in uniforms with negotiated holidays. But just war no longer proves helpful in a world where small bands of terrorists with modest bundles of cash can do unspeakable terror to unarmed civilians. In this new world, war itself has become dysfunctional. What are the theological, political, and programmatic bases needed to become a peacemaking church? A Just Peace Church seeks to locate a position between pacifism and just war.

A practical look at Peace Mar 25, 2000
If you are interested in looking at new ways that your congregation can promote justice and peace, this is a very helpful book. The ideas of Shalom and true peace is looked at quite closely in this book. While this was written for the UCC's transition to a just peace stance, this could easily fit other faith traditions. This also includes study questions if one would like to use it in a study setting.
