Forging Swords into Plows examines the historic Christian perspectives on war (holy war, pacifism, and just war). The book advocates expanding Just War Theory to include jus post bellum criteria, then uses the updated model as a framework for comparing the Christian, Jewish, and Islamic perspectives on war and assessing the justness of the U.S. invasions and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq.
