"The Christian tradition has supplied a variety of answers to the question of war - but how are we to decide which one is right? More basically, how does one go about forming one's personal conscience? For all who ponder these questions - whether young people facing military service, or counselors, chaplains, or teachers - this book is essential."--BOOK JACKET.

I'd have to agree with Alex's review from goodreads.com. The book does have quite a bit of bias to it, which is fine as a propaganda piece, but not as a general review of the subject. I say this as someone who is somewhat sympathetic to the author's position. This book was required reading in a class I took in my undergrad program. Were it not for my professor's counterpoint to this book, it would have been inappropriate for an academic setting. That said, this book should not be utilized as a textbook, unless it is part of a broader survey of multiple books on the subject - and even then, other books have done a better job of articulating the author's position.
