Item Description...
"There are no words foul and filthy enough to describe war." So declared Geoffrey Studdert Kennedy (1883-1929), the cigarette-smoking padre "Woodbine Willie" whose battlfield experiences in World War I made him his generation's most eloquent defender of Christian pacicism. A tireless champion of the social gospel, he wrote a dozen books, scores of articles, hundreds of poems, and promoted economic justice in Britain and America by preaching. Studdert Kennedy's writing and preaching influenced an entire generation. Archbishop William Temple described him as a "true prophet." Although he has fallen into obscurity over the years, Studdert Kennedy's message has helped inspire the likes of Desmond Tutu and Jurgen Moltmann. This collection of his work, the first in sixty years, introduces this most relevant of thinkers to new readers. The book pulls together Studdert Kennedy's most important writings on war and peace, poverty, the problem of evil, the church's role in the world, sin and atonement, the suering God, love versus force as world powers, and the beloved community. Kerry Walters, the editor, introduces the texts with a biographical and thematic essay. "Kerry Walters deserves thanks for his accessible presentation of Studdert Kennedy's religious thought on war and its aftermath. Earning the nickname 'Woodbine Willie' from the British soldiers he served as chaplain in the 'Great War to end all wars', the knew first-hand the unspeakable horrors of war. He also knew that faith was not only possible after the hostilities ceased; it was necessary. His was not a disembodied or privatized faith. He is especially helpful in linking the Eucharist with social justice. Readers will appreciate his passionate love for the poor, wounded, and dying Christ and his commitment to the church, where he and others can insist that, indeed, after war faith is possible." -John Perry, SJ Associate Professor, Arthur V. Mauro Center for Peace and Justice, St. Paul's College, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg KERRY WALTERS is William Bittinger Professor of Philosophy and Professor of Peace and Justice Studies at Gettysburg College. He is the author of 19 previous books on philosophy, theology, and peace, and has been a peace activist since the Vietnam War era."
