  • Armies know all about killing It is what they do, and ours does it effectively than most We are painfully coming to realize, however, that we are also especially good at killing our own from the inside out, silently, invisibly In every major war since Korea, of our veterans have taken their lives than have lost them in combat The latest research, rooted inArmies know all about killing It is what they do, and ours does it effectively than most We are painfully coming to realize, however, that we are also especially good at killing our own from the inside out, silently, invisibly In every major war since Korea, of our veterans have taken their lives than have lost them in combat The latest research, rooted in veteran testimony, reveals that the most severe and intractable PTSD fraught with shame, despair, and suicide stems from moral injury But how can there be rampant moral injury in what our military, our government, our churches, and most everyone else call just wars At the root of our incomprehension lies just war theory developed, expanded, and updated across the centuries to accommodate the evolution of warfare, its weaponry, its scale, and its victims Any serious critique of war, as well any true attempt to understand the profound, invisible wounds it inflicts, will be undermined from the outset by the unthinking and all but universal acceptance of just war doctrine Killing from the Inside Out radically questions that theory, examines its legacy, and challenges us to look beyond it, beyond just war.

    1. This was not an easy book to read, but not because of the historical and theological material shared; rather, the book evoked memories of actual events and associated feelings from my experiences in Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, and Iraq in 2004. An interrogator in Vietnam, I was a Chaplain in the last two. This important volume on the genesis, practicality, and failure of the Just War Tradition has challenged my sense of self as a theologian and a decent man in that work. The sentence that sums it [...]


    2. Christians permanently went from being “comprehensively pacifistic before Emperor Constantine’s conversion to Christianity to downright warlike after his conversion.” This book is the rebuttal to Just War theory which was created by St. Augustine around the time of Constantine whose Christian Armies bearing the sign of the cross were sanctioned for the first time to kill non-Christians in apposition to everything Jesus taught. “Jesus nowhere teaches that it is right for his disciples to [...]


    3. In his 2014 book, “Killing From The Inside Out – Moral Injury And Just War”, author Robert Emmet Meagher takes an historical look at Just War theory – its development and practice, and particularly, its fruits.

    4. An interesting take on Just War Theory in the 21st Century. I agree with many of the conclusions, although I found the tie between sex and killing in war odd. I guess I get the point (have to read the book to understand), but I think it could've been a lot sharper without that tie (which - interestingly - is totally omitted from the conclusion chapter. Overall, I recommend the book to those who serve and those who send those who serve.
