My Peace I Leave with You: Exploring Theological Pacifisms

In the next few weeks I will be starting up a series of guest posts from Christian pacifists of different traditions. As John Howard Yoder observed in his book, Nevertheless, there are many kinds of Christian pacifists whose commitments to peace and nonviolence derive from many different ecclesial and theological commitments.

I hope to explore some of those varieties here by listening to a number of different theobloggers who have come to embrace the Christian peace witness and have found their convictions to be shaped and formed by their respective traditions. Starting in the next couple weeks I will be posting brief essays from people across the spectrum of ecclesial traditions to discuss what their “pacifism” means to them, theologically and personally and how their views on that topic are informed by their particular ecclesial and theological tradition.

I am still open to other contributions if that interests you. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to have your own perspective represented. Hope you all find the series enjoyable!

    I look forward to reading your comments.

    I just picked up Hauerwas’s book Performing the Faith: Bonhoeffer and the Practice of NonviolenceM, with the intention of learning more about Hauerwas’s own pacifism and Christian pacifism in general. (I’m fairly new to Hauerwas’s thought and unfortunately, until recently, have never seriously grappled with the arguments and implications of Christian pacifism).
