About-

Christians and Nonviolence in the Nuclear Age presents a constructive personal response that individuals can make to the challenge posed by nuclear weapons. It outlines a positive, nonviolent alternative to war. This alternative can be practiced in one's own personal life and extended into the arena of international relations.
The book assesses the terrible realities of the Nuclear Age and sophisticated weapons systems in light of the biblical teachings about idolatry. Then it presents the life of Jesus as a model upon which women and men of good will can pattern a lifestyle of nonviolence.
Christians and Nonviolence in the Nuclear Age proposes a new vision of self, country, and the world that measures up to the demands of the times. In light of that vision, the book suggests specific actions individuals and groups can take to change the course of our world from self-destruction to mutual understanding and cooperation.
