Summary
What were the "peace principles" of the early Christian Church? What did believers view as the proper response to unprovoked personal attacks and disputes among themselves? How did Christians view violence in sports, capital punishment, war, abortion, and euthanasia? Dr. Brattston examines these topics using New Testament and other Christian sources dating from before the middle of the third century. In so doing, he provides modern Christians with important clarity on early Christian thought
