Just Peace

Full Product Description

Despite their largely pacifist origins, Christianity and Christian traditions can claim only limited success in their efforts to conciliate conflict, avoid violence, and stop war. Perhaps it is time, say the eminent contributors to this deeply reflective volume, to look East, to the very different perspectives of Orthodox Christians on issues of war, peace, and the justice that must undergird peace. Writing from Europe and Russia, as well as the Middle East and Asia, two dozen Orthodox theologians and church people cast the classic dilemmas of war and peace, military service, just war, and religious nationalism into a deeper theological framework. Contents include historical characterisations of Orthodox in a variety of settings and nations (Greece, Oriental Christianity, Bulgaria, Armenia, Western Europe, etc.), dilemmas of nationalism for the churches, the Russian Orthodox Church and the military, the invasion of Iraq, globalisation, fundamentalisms, inter-religious tensions, the ecclesial vocation of peacemaking.

Just Peace was published by World Council of Churches (WCC Publications) in November 2011. The ISBN for Just Peace is 9782825415542.
