The Early Christian Attitude Toward War
This extraordinary volume, published originally in 1919, makes it clear that the church in the earliest centuries condemned, as Christ did, all participation in war. The volume is most appropriate for use in meditation at this time, when it seems virtually certain that a conventional war might well end up in a nuclear holocaust. It should prompt an agaonizing reappraisal by all Christians in the modern world about the true and valid approach which Christians simply must adopt with respect to warfare - The Rev. Robert F. Drinan (Georgetown University Law Center).
