Glen Stassen believes Christians should direct their energies toward finding a set of criteria and a model for a "just peace" instead of "just war." He bases his just peace theory on the new reality of our world, on recent biblical interpretation, and on the experiences of people who lived in the face of oppression and nuclear threat, and who--together with political scientists, Christian ethicists, and activists--fashioned realistic steps toward peacemaking.
