9780816402007: Violence: Reflections from a Christian Perspective.

On an issue that has created considerable uncertainty and uneasiness among many Christians, Jacques Ellul brings to bear the bold analysis and the brilliant clarity of argument that are associated with his distinguished studies on contemporary social questions. After surveying historically the various approaches of Christians to violence, Ellul examines in depth current statements by Christians condoning or accepting violence. He then contrasts, with penetrating insight, the dynamics of violence and the clear demands of the Gospel. In a concluding chapter he eloquently sets forth the truly distinctive nature of Christian radicalism and the violence of love. Of comfort to neither Right nor Left as such, this Gospel-centered study of the complex issue of violence today-deftly translated by Cecilia Gaul Kings-is a forceful, original contribution to the ongoing discussion of the issue in church and society.
