Based on the debates of bishops, church councils, and scholars who reflected on policy alternatives and invoked theological and ethical perspectives on the Gulf crisis, Lines in the Sand focuses on moral issues surrounding the Persian Gulf War. Alan Geyer and Barbara Green present a penetrating case study of foreign policy, military policy, moral argument, and religious discourse, while arguing that the "just war" tradition offers only partial aid for Christian reflection in matters of war and peace.

Alan Geyer is Professor Emeritus of Political Ethics and Ecumenics at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C.


Barbara G. Green is Executive Director of the Churches' Center for Theology and Public Policy in Washington, D.C. as well as a Senior Advisor for Faithful Security. She served as Associate for Peacemaking Issues for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in its Washington office for fifteen years.
