Resources for week of 10/31:

This week, I am incorporating a bibliography that I received from a course called Ethics in a Secular Society taught at Fuller Seminary by Elizabeth Phillips. In the class, we didn’t have time to go over the issues that arise when trying to take a stance on war/pacifism as a Christ-follower. At the end of the course, she gave us a bibliography for our own use later on. It was actually her suggestions that sparked my interest in joining this group. Here are some of the references that Elizabeth Phillips suggested.
