An excellent book, covering the core moral ideas about war in Christian, Jewish and Muslim teachings, and bringing those ideas to bear on the world we live in today. Great stuff.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I was disappointed by this book. It tries to cover too much in too little space and offers an idiosyncratic approach to the Just War tradition. I found his proposed rewrite of Just War much less helpful than the traditional approach. Instead of Temes, I recommend anything by James Turner Johnson.Was this review helpful?
