I'd like to see a collection on the theology of peace and reconciliation (of interest to any in the peace churches: Mennonites, Quakers, etc. and really anyone these days who is looking to find out about alternatives to "just war" theology -- which I think leads to the other meaning of just war, that is "nothing but war"). Some books I might include in such a collection would be:

  • Exclusion and Embrace: A Theological Exploration of Identity, Otherness, and Reconciliation (Miroslav Volf)
  • The End of Memory: Remembering Rightly in a Violent World (Miroslav Volf)
  • Free of Charge: Giving and Forgiving in a Culture Stripped of Grace (Miroslav Volf)
  • Embodying Forgiveness: A Theological Analysis (L. Gregory Jones)
  • The Original Revolution: Essays on Christian Pacifism (John Howard Yoder)
  • The Politics of Jesus (John Howard Yoder)
  • He Came Preaching Peace (John Howard Yoder)
  • Christian Attitudes to War, Peace, and Revolution (John Howard Yoder)
  • Christian Attitudes toward War and Peace: A Historical Survey and Critical Re-evaluation (Roland H. Bainton)
  • War: Four Christian Views (Robert G. Clouse)
  • Powers, Weakness, and the Tabernacling of God (Marva Dawn)
  • Living Toward a Vision : Biblical Reflections on Shalom (Walter Brueggemann)
  • Peace (Understanding Biblical Themes series) (Walter Brueggemann)
  • Covenant of Peace: The Missing Peace in New Testament Theology and Ethics (Willard M. Swartley)
  • A Peace Reader: Essential Readings on War, Justice, Non-Violence and World Order (Joseph J. Fahey & Richard Armstrong, eds.)
  • Yahweh Is a Warrior: The Theology of Warfare in Ancient Israel (Christian Peace Shelf) (Millard Lind)
  • It Is Not Lawful for Me to Fight: Early Christian Attitudes Toward War, Violence, and the State (Christian Peace Shelf) (Jean-Michel Hornus)

Perhaps also some of the books in the bibliography at the Peace Theology website:

EDIT: Also, here are some reference works in peace theology studies:

EDIT again: here are some more:

  • The Peaceable Kingdom: A Primer In Christian Ethics (Stanley Hauerwas)
  • Christian Peacemaking and International Conflict: A Realist Pacifist Perspective (Duane K. Friesen)
  • A Declaration on Peace (John Howard Yoder)
  • The Journey Toward Reconciliation (John Paul Lederach)
  • Two Kingdoms, Two Loyalties: Mennonite Pacifism in Modern America (Perry Bush)

Bump! I'm glad to see that some of these are available now (links added). But the rest still need attention.

Another update, as it's been a few years and more of these are now available. More links added.

I also noticed a couple of others that I've bought:

And of the suggestions I made initially, nine years ago, this one remains my top priority to get in Logos. I've put in a UserVoice suggestion and will promote it in a separate post, but if you happen to be reading about it here and want to go vote it's here.
