Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Weigel, president of the James Madison Foundation, first outlines a sophisticated view of war and peace developed from church tradition by American Catholics, especially John Courtney Murray, and based on the concept of peace as "dynamic, rightly ordered political community." He then shows how, after Vatican Council II, Dorothy Day, Gordon Zahn, the Berrigans, James Douglass, J. Bryan Hehir, and, finally, the American bishops abandoned this view for "personalist/conversionist understandings of peace." The wealth of information makes the survey valuable, but Weigel is disappointingly vague on the precise differences between the "traditional" view and the "failures" of American Catholics since the Council. W. Charles Heiser, S.J., St. Louis Univ. Lib.
