With one voice, David L. Clough and Brian Stiltner outline and clarify issues of humanitarian intervention, weapons proliferation, and preventative war against rogue states. Their writing is grounded in Christian tradition and provides a fresh and illuminating account of the complexities and nuances of the pacifist and just war positions. In each chapter Clough and Stiltner engage in debate on the issues, demonstrating a respectful exchange of ideas absent in much contemporary political discourse--whether on television or in the classroom. The result is a well-reasoned, challenging repartee that searches for common ground within the Christian tradition and on behalf of the faithful promotion of justice--yet one that also recognizes genuine differences that cannot be bridged easily. Intended for a broad audience, Faith and Force is the perfect foil to the shrill screeching that surrounds partisan perspectives on military power and its use.

David L. Clough is Professor of Theological Ethics and Head of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Chester, UK. His book publications include Ethics in Crisis: Interpreting Barth's Ethics (2005) and Faith and Force: A Christian Debate about War (2007) and he co-edited Creaturely Theology: On God, Humans and Animals (2009) and Animals as Religious Subjects (2013). Many of his articles are available via the University of Chester Open Access Repository, and you can also follow him on Twitter.
