The call to arms often thrusts devoted Christians into a dilemma: They want to be responsible citizens who obey the government and love their country. And yet they worship a God who loves all people, including enemies. Throughout history, Christians have responded in various ways-some renouncing violence and military participation, others seeking military service in a godly way.

Both politically relevant and theologically provocative, this field manual seeks to recapture the hearts and minds of Christians trapped between conflicting loyalties to faith and citizenship. Filled with compelling stories and photos, Iraq war veteran Logan Mehl-Laituri creates an almanac of soldier saints and patriot pacifists from the front lines of church history.

Review by: Shane Claiborne, Author, activist, and Christian peacemaker - September 14, 2013

“This book is like a Hall of Fame for Christian soldiers and peacemakers, written by one of my favorite veterans for peace. Logan reminds us that making peace is as costly as waging war, and if we aren’t prepared to pay the price for peace like the folks in this book, than we should sadly confess that we never really believed that the cross is an alternative to the sword.”

Review by: Titus Peachey, Peace educator, Mennonite Central Committee - September 14, 2013

“An invitation to engage in rich discussion about allegiance, courage, and the path to peace out of the soul-searing violence of war. Through centuries of witness from soldiers who sought to follow the Spirit toward the way of love, we are challenged to walk the path of peace courageously in our day.”

Review by: Mark Noll, Historian, author of Protestantism: A Very Short Introduction - September 14, 2013

“Logan Mehl-Laituri wants those of us who don’t think seriously about warfare to think harder. His collection of stories does not lay out an argument as such, but stimulates the right kind of consideration of a perennially significant question: How will Christians respond to their nation’s call to arms?”
