Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Across the centuries, how have Christians who follow the Prince of Peace responded to the recurring reality of war? And what guidance do they offer for believers today–in the midst of global conflict?

In When God Says War Is Right, Dr. Darrell Cole offers thorough and highly readable answers. His expert examination focuses on these topics:

Relating the character of God with the use of force

Determining when and how Christians ought to fight

Understanding why Christian virtues are vital when using force

Using nuclear weapons for deterrence

Learning lessons from World War II, Vietnam, and the 1991 Gulf War

Responding to today’s war against terrorism

Dr. Cole focuses on Romans 13, where Paul commands us to “do what is right” (or “good” or “noble”) in regard to our governing authorities, who have legitimate war-making authority. In the case of war, what is “right” for the Christian? This book answers that essential question. In today’s war-stricken world, Dr. Cole provides timely, trustworthy, and vitally needed guidance for Christians.
