Christianity and War and Other Essays Against the Warfare State

For many theologically conservative Christians, support for American foreign military intervention is on a level with support for the doctrine of the inerrancy of Scripture — zealous, absolute, and unwavering. Laurence Vance’s new book, Christianity and War, and Other Essays Against the Warfare State, is a much-needed reminder of the destruction, horror, and (frequently) the injustice of war.

Christianity And War And Other Essays Against …

Laurence Vance, a serious Christian writer and teacher, offers a dramatic counterpoint. In his latest book, Christianity and War, Vance collects 79 essays on military and foreign policy. He spares no one, declaring: "Christians who condone the warfare state and its nebulous crusades against ‘evil’ have been duped. There is nothing ‘Christian’ about the state’s aggressive militarism, its senseless wars, its interventions into the affairs of other countries, and its expanding empire."
