Theodore R. Weber.  War, Peace, and Reconciliation: a Theological Inquiry  The Lutterworth Press.  160 Pages.  ISBN: 9780718894450

War, Peace, and Reconciliation invites Christians and their churches into a dialogue regarding how to think about war from a standpoint rooted in faith. It asks how reconciliation, which is central to Christian life and doctrine, can engage with the realities of war without surrendering its fundamental affirmations. Theodore Weber defines these realities politically by discussing the meanings of power, peace as a particular organisation of power, and the international system. The study of war and politics is unavoidable, as is engagement with reconciliation, because all human activity exists in the context of the gracious work of God to renew and reconcile the fallen creation. Weber’s inquiry is theocentric and christocentric. It culminates in a stirring call to churches to examine all their practices in the light of this perspective.  $24.00 from Amazon.com
