In these turbulent times, many have linked Christianity to violence, arguing that Christian doctrines inevitably lead to bloodshed, conquest, and war. Must Christianity Be Violent? provides specific responses to these accusations. The essays, by contributors including Mark Noll, Richard Mouw, and Stanley Hauerwas, explore the history of Christian violence and advocate the need for an uncompromised Biblical theology in our search for peace. This timely collection will appeal to readers of Christian history, ethics, and theology, and those who want to better understand a specifically Christian response to violence and how to cultivate Christian peace.
