A call for nuclear disarmament, this brief book explains the stance of the United Methodist Council of Bishops on nuclear weapons and the arms race. The purpose of this manifesto is to “mobilize the church to witness and action in the face of the major threat to human survival in our time: the nuclear arms race” (foreword). Believing that nuclear weapons are a challenge to one’s faith, the Council points to biblical foundations for its view. After explaining the arms race in relation to both American society and the world community, the Council suggests policies for peace and using the church as a peacemaker.
