In this book, Ron Sider meticulously and convincing explores the meaning of Jesus's message of love for all and the biblical basis for renouncing violence and war. He offers excellent biblically grounded support for Christian peacemaking, while also examining differing points of view. He implores pacifists to be responsive to the range of legitimate critiques against them, challenges just war Christians to consider that there are more than two options (kill or do nothing) to defend neighbours and suggests bountiful biblical and historic evidence that making peace is less costly than making war. Ronald Sider protests that non-violent resistance to injustice, tyranny and brutal dictatorship has (particularly over the past 50 years) repeatedly proved itself astonishingly successful, and cites Ghandi and Martin Luther King, amongst other examples. There is always a third option to killing or doing nothing in response to tyranny and brutality, of vigorous, nonviolent resistance. And frequently it works. This thorough, comprehensive treatment of a topic of perennial concern vigorously engages with the just war tradition and issues a challenge to all Christians, especially evangelicals, to engage in biblical peacemaking. The book includes a foreword by Stanley Hauerwas. In 240pp and 14 chapters, and with bibligraphy, subject and name index and scripture index.
