There are three major Christian attitudes toward warfare that conveniently may be designated by the terms "holy war", "pacifism", and "just war". These three have a long history of development in the course of Christian history. But the roots of all three are to be found in the biblical narrative, both Old Testament and New Testament. John Wood traces all three through the scriptures and finds ample relevant materials for interpreting and evaluating biblical teachings regarding warfare. Contemporary students of the history of warfare, and of course those struggling with the perennial question of the relevance, morality, or necessity of warfare, will find Wood's study to be very helpful in sorting out what indeed the Bible has to offer. Wood finds throughout scripture the very themes that continue to plague or puzzle today: exclusiveness and vengeance, inclusiveness and redemption, pacifism, holy war, just war, and God as warrior-king.
