    1. This book was written in the late 80s/early 90s. The idea iof the book is that there are always peaceful ways to resolve conflict whether that be between two individuals or two nations. Written by one of the founders of the "just peacemaking' movement he goes into detail outlining the call by Jesus to avoid bloodshed at any cost. He relates how the Gulf War spiraled due to inability of both the UN/US and Iraq to affirm each other's interests (not just economic) and how these simple conversation [...]

    2. This is a unique approach to conflict. Much needed in today's chaotic world. The concept is fairly new and the support for it has been growing. This is a must read. It contains a collection of pieces written by a variety of authors who have worked through this process together. Each addresses a different point of emphasis in the theory. They use clear examples where the use of each point would have been valuable in international politics. They are objective about the weaknesses of each point als [...]

    3. I wasn't too impressed by this, except for chapters 1, 2, 3, and most of 6. Stassen is a biblical scholar, and he excels in explaining the Sermon on the Mount and it's guidance for peacemaking. In addition, chapter 6 does a nice job explaining the origins of human rights language in the 17th century radical Baptist Richard Overton (one of the "Levellers"). These chapters were worth the price of the book.

    4. I find John Howard Yoder to be one of my hero's, I found Glen Stassen to be also. He's a refreshing voice for transforming initiatives for justice and peace. I would have liked him to spend a few pages elaborating on what he would sees is a Christians role after war has begun. Perhaps that is for another book? But, as he states, whether or not you are a pacifist, a just war theorist or other, I think we can all work in the areas of just peacemaking. Brilliant.

    5. Just started this. Not light reading, but very thought-provoking, especially given the current situation in Syria, Iraq & the Middle East.
