The Pacifist Option

The Moral Argument Against War in Eastern Orthodox Theology.

A book I just bought and put up in the Bookstore.


















I haven't read it yet, but it looks like a good read, plus it's right up my lane.

As seen from the Website:
"In this path-breaking study, Fr. Alexander Webster convincingly demonstrates that a distinctive pacifist trajectory, characterized by the moral virtues of non-violence, nonresistance, voluntary kenotic suffering, and universal forgiveness, has endured through two millennia of Eastern Orthodox history in unbroken continuity with the ancient Church."



I would also like to make it known that the same author helped produce another book called "the virtue of war". Which talks about the opposite perspective, and it's support in the history of the Church......both east and west.
