War destroys lives and character.

Since the Vietnam era, there has arisen, in America and the whole of Western society, a way of thinking that argues against all war. Consequently, a book discussing the question of a Christian's participation in war and other related issues in light of this emerging consensus seems not just appropriate but necessary. In an environment where war is, by definition, immoral, it is difficult for "good," "decent" folks to think positively about war-fighting. This book is an effort to correct such thinking and to instruct the interested reader as to what the Bible actually says about this most important subject. In addition to the war issue, the author deals with the question of nuclear weapons, the United Nations, the war on terror and how it relates to the war in Iraq, and capital punishment. The author's examination of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount and how it relates to this subject of war is especially interesting.

Good morning other Amazon shoppers,
I bought this book, as a request, for a soldier I adopted that is currently serving in Afghanistan. He wrote that it gaven him "masterful direction". The book stores where I checked were out of it, and of course Amazon had it.
Thirty years ago someone called Allan Turner a writer par-excellence. But no one can write so clearly and lucidly without also being a thinker par-excellence. This book clearly shows that Turner is both. If you enjoy sitting at the feet of someone who will make you think, challenge your previously held opinions, and strengthen your convictions, this book is for you. I gladly give it a five-star rating, and would just as gladly give it a ten if that were an option.
The "war question" was thrust into the minds of many when they were but babes in Christ. As young men with an abject dearth of information and prejudicial advice given them, they quickly found themselves forced to make a conscience decision...a choice that in all probability was an uneasy and unsatisfying one. Either patriotism or Christianity seemed to be the only options. Are they disjoint and mutually exclusive? They are not and Allan Turner explains why. He does this by explaining how one can be a patriot without doing so blindly and be a Christian without being a pacifist. In his recent publication, The Christian And War, he explores in depth the alleged dichotomy between being a patriot and being a Christian. Turner's rich background of being in the military, being a policeman and above all an astute Bible student allows him a perspective that is quite unique. You will be challenged, enlightened and probably surprised at the author's candid and common sense solution to this question. One that has baffled the ripest of scholar's who have tried and failed to grasp the "war question". It is my judgment that you will find his book refreshing and interesting. In that spirit I heartily commend it to you.

As I began reading this book I knew very quickly that I would be challenged to look at the subject of war in ways that I hadn't thought of before. The author puts forth many questions and then seeks to explain them with biblical reason. It definitely made me think...and I'm still thinking. A must read!
