“Sometimes we hear it said that all war is wrong—wrong for the defenders as well as for the aggressors—and that even when waged with the sincere purpose of restraining evil, it tends to produce greater evils than those against which it is directed.”

It was in response to that view that Loraine Boettner wrote this compelling volume, first published in 1940. Now in an updated, third edition, Dr. Boettner brings biblical and historical data to bear upon issues of mounting concern, such as:

  • What causes war?
  • The relationship between military and police force
  • Can there be a just war?
  • The premises of pacifism
  • The consequences of war
  • The limits of obedience to the government
  • War as judgment on nations
  • Nuclear weapons

Boettner’s crisp analysis of these and other issues makes this book a valuable and enduring statement on the ever-crucial matters of war and peace.
