Inter-Varsity Press The War on Terror: How Should Christians Respond?

How do we as Christians love our enemies in an age of war and terror? Followers of Christ today cannot avoid wrestling with serious questions such as: Why does God allow war and why would He let terrorist attacks to happen? Should Western Christians support or oppose their governments' wars? How should Iraqi and Palestinian Christians respond to the occupation of their lands? Do the Old and New Testaments contradict each other about how we should treat our enemies?

Nick Solly Megoran's The War on Terror doesn't offer easy answers to these difficult questions, but it does provide resources for approaching them from a Christian perspective. By bringing solid biblical exposition to bear on the geopolitical events of our day, Megoran provides a balanced, Christian approach to the church's witness in an age of war and terror. He first addresses why war happens and what our response should be. Then he explores practical aspects of being citizens of heaven and how Christians can cultivate skills of peacemaking and forgiveness. With vivid illustrations and global examples of Christian courage in the face of adversity, he shows how the Gospel brings hope to a violent world. Includes study guides on different Christian approaches to war, terrorism, just war theory and pacifism.

This book is truly a necessary read. It presents the gospel, as it pertains to our response to war and injustice in our world. Using scripture and historical fact, Nick show us how the church has gone form living the gospel according to Christ, to a nationalistic, earthly kingdom model. He also presents us with what some Christians are doing to right the wrongs done in the name of Christ, which are healing deep wounds and making a way for the gospel to shine in difficult places. This book will help you change your thinking.

This book takes an unconventional view of our perspective on, " the war on terror." It is well researched and often quotes the words of Jesus.
