John Howard Yoder was one of the major theologians of the late twentieth century. Before his death, he planned the essays and structure of this book, which he intended to be his last work. Now two leading interpreters of Yoder bring that work to fruition. The book is divided into three sections: pacifism, just war theory, and just peacemaking theory. The volume crystallizes Yoder's argument that his proposed ethics is not sectarian and a matter of withdrawal. He also clearly argues that Christian just war and Christian pacifist traditions are basically compatible--and more specifically, that the Christian just war tradition itself presumes against all violence.

Dr. Kenneth Vaux, Professor of Theological Ethics at Garrett Evangelical Seminary, examines the U.S. led war on terrorism from an Abrahamic theological and ethical perspective.Ê Vaux examines just-war theory and applies various traditions to the current war in Afghanistan.ÊÊ His reflections range from holy war in the Hebrew scripture, the Qu'ran and Constantinian Christianity to the Crusades, Christian pacifism, the American War of Independence, and 20th Century Wars (World Wars I and II, Vietnam, Somalia, Bosnia and the Israeli-Arab wars).Ê Vaux ends with the fatal trifurcation: the disjunction among Christianity, Islam and Judaism as the challenge before us.

The Violence Of The Lamb

The act of martyrdom in the worldview of the Apocalypse has been considered to be an exemplification of non-violent resistance. Paul Middleton argues here, however, that it is in fact a representation of direct participation by Christians, through their martyrdom, in divine violence against those the author of Revelation portrays as God's enemies. Middleton shows that acceptance of martyrdom is to grasp the invitation to participate in the Revelation's divine violence. Martyrs follow the model laid down by the Lamb, who was not only slain, but resurrected, glorified, and who executes judgement. The world created by the Apocalypse encourages readers to conquer the Beast through martyrdom, but also through the experience of resurrection and being appointed judges. In this role, martyrs participate in the judgement of the wicked by sharing the Lamb's power to judge. Different from eschewing violence, the conceptual world of the Apocalypse portrays God, the Lamb, and the martyrs as possessing more power, might, and violent potential than the Emperor and his armies. Middleton believes that martyrdom and violence are necessary components of the worldview of Revelation.

Caesar And The Lamb

Author : George Kalantzis

Through the available patristic writings Caesar and the Lamb focuses on the attitudes of the earliest Christians on war and military service. Kalantzis not only provides the reader with many new translations of pre-Constantinian texts, he also tells the story of the struggle of the earliest Church, the communities of Christ at the margins of power and society, to bear witness to the nations that enveloped them as they transformed the dominant narratives of citizenship, loyalty, freedom, power, and control. Although Kalantzis examines writings on war and military service in the first three centuries of the Christian Church in an organized manner, the ways earliest Christians thought of themselves and the state are not presented here through the lens of antiquarian curiosity. With theological sensitivity and historical acumen this companion leads the reader into the world in which Christianity arose and asks questions of the past that help us understand the early character of the Christian faith with the hope that such an enterprise will also help us evaluate its expression in our own time.

This is the warning God gave to His children concerning the beast in Revelations 13:18: Here is the wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. This book explores the knowledge of the place of the War of Armageddon; the actors who will be involved, with the hidden identities of the beast and the false prophet revealed; and the records of the results of every battlefield of the war. In these pages, the final outcome of the war and the consequences for all sides are laid bare. Through this knowledge, individuals can avoid being deceived into receiving the mark of the beast or worshiping its image. For this image bestows the spirit of demons-a spirit destined for hellfire by God Almighty.

There is a growing collective interest in the end times. But with that interest comes a barrage of confusing, and sometimes misleading, ideas and messages. With so much available information, how can we discern fact from fiction? Pastor Simon Ponsonby takes an eye-opening look at what the future holds. Cutting through today's cultural din, Simon examines provocative topics including: Biblical indicators of the end times The return of Jesus Christ The tribulation and the rapture Israel's place in the future The true role of the antichrist Simon examines each event through the lens of solid scripture, and shares how we can realistically and positively react to these revelations in our daily life. Most of all, we'll find that whatever the future has in store, our hope lies beyond this world. Because no matter the end, the lamb wins.

Deep within the remote backlands of nineteenth-century Brazil lies Canudos, home to all the damned of the earth: prostitutes, bandits, beggars, and every kind of outcast. It is a place where history and civilization have been wiped away. There is no money, no taxation, no marriage, no census. Canudos is a cauldron for the revolutionary spirit in its purest form, a state with all the potential for a true, libertarian paradise--and one the Brazilian government is determined to crush at any cost. In perhaps his most ambitious and tragic novel, Mario Vargas Llosa tells his own version of the real story of Canudos, inhabiting characters on both sides of the massive, cataclysmic battle between the society and government troops. The resulting novel is a fable of Latin American revolutionary history, an unforgettable story of passion, violence, and the devastation that follows from fanaticism.

Restorative Christ

Author : Geoff Broughton

The conviction that Jesus is the restorative Christ demands a commitment to the justice he articulated. The justice of the restorative Christ is justice with reconciliation, justice with repentance, justice with repair, and justice without retaliation. The Gospel of Luke and the book of Acts portray the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ through the radical concept of "enemy-love." In conversation with Dietrich Bonhoeffer (Jesus-for-others), John Howard Yoder (a nonviolent Jesus), Miroslav Volf (an embracing Jesus), and Chris Marshall (a compassionate Jesus), Broughton demonstrates what the restorative Christ means for us today. Following the restorative Christ faithfully involves imaginative disciplines (seeing, remembering, and desiring), conversational disciplines (naming, questioning, and forgiving), and embodied disciplines (absorbing, repairing, and embracing).
