The only lasting way to eliminate an enemy is to make him your friend.
This is vintage Wink at his best. I will refer to this little book often. It would be a steal at twice the price.
For heartier fare on this issue that is at the heart of Christian faith and life one may turn to Wink's trilogy on The Powers. For comparable or related works I highly recommend John Howard Yoder, The Politics of Jesus and William T. Cavanaugh, Torture and the Eucharist. One lack in this little monograph is that Wink doesn't mention the work of René Girard on desire and violence, although he has taken note of it in The Powers.
The topic of non-violence is one in which we should as pastors continue to wrestle. It is a topic that many in our churches and parishes reject, but still need in their hearts to work through. Wink presents a sound, logical, & Biblical argument for the Christian to follow this way of life.
I highly recommend that you buy this book and read it over and over and over.
