Peace MakersGeorge Taylor, via The Good Book Stall
Described by General Sir Richard Dannatt as ‘a work of extraordinary relevance’ this book addresses the question of how Christians relate to war and peace and develops the idea of ‘The Just War’. Taking examples from around the world from the so called ‘War on Terror’ to Darfur in the Sudan, to Kosovo, and the decision of the U.S. not to interfere directly in the War in Europe in 1939, Peter Dixon a former RAF pilot, looks at Christian attitudes towards war over the centuries but particularly in the 20th.
He asks, how should Christians engage in war? The author argues that whilst many have turned away from the Christian faith after considering why God allows war, evil and suffering to occur he believes it is necessary to take a much broader look rather than simply war and violence on their own.
He considers how globalization has affected the impact of conflict around the world whilst at the same time noting that there has been a shift from war between states to war within states in recent years.
The author concludes by saying that to be effective in peacekeeping the process must be owned by the people involved or affected by the violence, and that ownership must be comprehensive.
