A Biblical view, a journey from U.S. Marine to Christian pacifist…
This book is valuable. It was written by a former Marine which sounds strange considering its subject. But as a former Marine myself I firmly believe that those of us who have been to war are quick to reject it. This book answered many questions about the peace of God and the Old Testament. It was very helpful to me in that area.

[Originally published by Friends United Press (currently out of print, ebook ony, link/s above, some used print version copies can be found). This is my personal testimony to the change wrought in my life when I began to examine it as I struggled to align my path with that narrow way charted by Scripture. Aside from the obvious teachings of Jesus, there were many surprises in the Old Testament.
This book gives an overview of my journey and those Scriptures that confronted me. For an academic work on Scripture and war, see Dr. Preston Sprinkle’s new book, Fight, published by David C. Cook, and the classic, Yahweh is a Warrior by Mennonite scholar Millard Lind. ]
To believe the promise of Jesus that his followers shall possess the earth, and at the same time to face our enemies unarmed and defenseless, preferring to incur injustice rather than to do wrong ourselves, is indeed a narrow way. – Dietrich Bomhoeffer (The Cost of Discipleship)
Jesus’ kingship is not something that remains in the future. Christ is King right this minute. —R.C. Sproul
