This issue of the Areopagus Journal has to do with the Christian or Biblical view of war, which is always timely as we consider the history (and future) of mankind. The role of government and the will of the people are inevitably bound together. Oftentimes, Christians miss this connection. We believe that as our nation ponders the future course of the war in Iraq and war on terror generally, Christians need to have a Biblical perspective on the subject of war. This journal presents crucial information on the topic distilled by the authors as an alternative for those without the time or inclination to read numerous books on the topic.
