Ethics and peace

DAVID HADORFF looks at what Christian ethics has to offer to this post-modern world, and finds some answers in Karl Barth's work. Christian Ethics as Witness: Barth's ethics for a world at risk analyses Barth's relevance to the political, economic, and environmental spheres (James Clarke, £28.75; 978-0-227-17374-9).

Matt Edge explores two questions in On Liberty and Peace: Peace Part II. The first is how humans can live together co-operatively; the second is where the boundaries and limits of individual freedom lie in order to be able do that (Imprint Academic, £8.95 (£8.05); 978-1-845-40204-4).

The essays in Reconciliation, Justice, and Peace address ideas that were discussed at the second African Synod held in Kenya in 2010. The book provides an opportunity for readers to learn about the theological thinking of Africans in their context, and the globalisation of the world. It is edited by Agbonkhianmeghe Orobator SJ (Orbis/Alban, £26.99 (£24.30); 978-1-57075-916-1).

In Peacemaking and Religious Violence: From Thomas Aquinas to Thomas Jefferson, Roger Johnson looks at different kinds of conflict. He devotes chapters to warring between different types of Christian; between Christians and people of the other Abrahamic faiths; and with those of other religions. (Lutterworth Press, £21.25; 978-0-7188-9240-1).
