ABOUT THE BOOK

Can war be considered doing God’s work?

Is there ever a good reason for Christians to be involved in war?

God has never allowed his people to decide for themselves on war. His Word shows his plan for us–the ones who listen to him–is simply obedience.

A clear-eyed look at the incompatibility of warfare and the gospel, and the Christian’s response.

“No human war fulfills God’s justice. Living the resurrection life and proclaiming it to the nations is God’s only command to Listeners today.”
