Dr. Kenneth Vaux, Professor of Theological Ethics at Garrett Evangelical Seminary, examines the U.S. led war on terrorism from an Abrahamic theological and ethical perspective. Vaux examines "just-war theory" and applies various traditions to the current war in Afghanistan.
His reflections range from "holy war" in the Hebrew scripture, the Qu'ran and Constantinian Christianity to the Crusades, Christian pacifism, the American "War of Independence", and 20th Century Wars (World Wars I and II, Vietnam, Somalia, Bosnia and the Israeli-Arab wars). Vaux ends with the "fatal trifurcation": the disjunction among Christianity, Islam and Judaism as the challenge before us.
Kenneth L. Vaux received his D.Th. from the University of Hamburg in 1968. He is Professor of Theological Ethics at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, Evanston, IL.
