How do we love our enemies in an age of war and terror?Christians today cannot avoid wrestling with serious issues: Why does God allow wars and terrorist attacks to happen? Should Western Christians support or oppose their governments' wars? How should Iraqi and Palestinian Christians respond to the occupation of their lands? Do the Old and New Testaments contradict each other about how we should treat our enemies? When children are killed, how can Christians offer forgiveness? What can ordinary Christians do about war, and how should we pray for the world?This book does not offer easy answers to these difficult questions, but gives resources for approaching them from a Christian perspective. By bringing solid biblical exposition to bear on the geopolitical events of our day, political geographer Nick Solly Megoran provides a balanced, Christian approach to the church's witness in an age of war and terror. He first addresses why war happens and what our response should be. Then he explores practical aspects of being citizens of heaven and how Christians can cultivate skills of peacemaking and forgiveness. With vivid illustrations and global examples of Christian courage in the face of adversity, he shows how the gospel brings hope to a violent world. Appendices give additional study guides on different Christian approaches to war, terrorism, just war theory and pacifism."A violent and warring world is simply crying out for real Christianity," writes Megoran. Whatever wars or global conflicts may arise, this book offers a vision for how we can be the church in the midst of wartime--not giving in to fear or despair, but extending God's message of love and reconciliation.
