ABSTRACT
Chapter 19 of the book "Philosophical Perspectives on the "War on Terror"" is presented. The author explores three positions that Christians have held on war and peace, namely, holding that Christians should not participate in war, allowing selective participation under certain circumstances, and advocating participation as part of a religious crusade to destroy God's enemies. Calling himself an "Engaged Christian Pacifist," the prefers to follow the New Testament's stand of non-participation in war but will deal concretely with injustice.
