Just Policing, by Ivan J. Kauffman
2004. 126 pages. ISBN-13: 978-1894710473
Of all the difficult problems that emerge in dialogue between Mennonites and Catholics, none is more difficult than the morality of warfare. Mennonites and Catholics, regardless of their personal positions on this issue, inherit two radically different traditions. Just Policing is a concentrated conversation that takes its point of departure from Gerald Schlabach's reflections on the ethics of warfare and policing. Five theologians and historians contribute to this dialogue that took place in 2002 under the auspices of the Mennonite-Catholic Theological Colloquium.
