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 todays 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 todays war-stricken world, Dr. Cole provides timely, trustworthy, and vitally needed guidance for Christians.

Synopsis:

In "When God Says War Is Right, " Cole focuses on such topics as relating the character of God with the use of force and when and how Christians ought to fight.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 151-160).

Everything about this book is wrong -- if God says war is right, then God is mistaken.
