I am not as staunchly pacifist as I was when I first read this book in 2003 but I still find Cole s conclusions underwhelming Essentially he uickly traces the history of just war theory from the early church fathers through Martin Luther and John Calvin with a few interesting insights most notable for me is that Tertullian with whose words Shane Claiborne and others defend a Christian pacifist view was eventually declared a heretic there is no indication of the basis for this designation but it does imply that those who cite Tertullian without explanation are either inadeuate researchers or potentially dishonest Cole pushes the point that the early church fathers were essentially ambiguous on the uestion of whether or not Christians should participate in military actions I noticed that the uotes Cole uses refer to soldiers who convert while in the military and do not address believers who are subseuently presented with the option of enlisting He then outlines just war theory with a slightly streamlined modern viewWhen he applies the theory though it becomes clear that no war in recent memory if ever has satisfied the reuirements to be a just war Cole suggests that World War II was probably just at least before the atom bomb took things too far for his reuirements but he admits that the goal of complete capitulation was contrary to just war principles so the war was never really overwhelmingly just He also insists that Gulf War I was just and that there was no problem with the motivations for the war I recognize that those of different political preferences ascribe different motivations to that conflict but it seems preposterous in light of continuing controversy over those motivations to suggest that the uestion is a settled one in favor of a just motivationEssentially Cole presents a case that violence is not always antithetical to the Christian life and it is appropriate and necessary in situations that meet the criteria for a just war The absence of any compelling example of a just war in the real world though should raise serious uestions about the theory In the same way that conservatives roll their eyes when liberals suggest that socialism could work under the proper circumstances I think this book invites eye rolls with its conclusion that in a perfect world a justified conflict could allow and demand that a Christian take up armsUltimately after re reading this book yesterday I remain unclear on the issue of whether or not a Christian should serve in the military I recognize that there are compelling Scriptural arguments for a variety of positions For all that Cole tries though his book falls just short of being a compelling support for a just war doctrine Overcoming Compulsive Hoarding needed guidance for Christians.
