A Time to Kill: The Myth of Christian Pacifism is about decisions. Not the everyday kind such as “What should I wear today?” or “Where shall we eat tonight?” but decisions dealing with life, death, and protecting the innocent. Self defense concerns decisions of survival for the individual. It can also decide the fate of a nation and its citizens.
A wealth of information at your fingertips January 27, 2013 ~ By Gasseous
I too have the honor of knowing the author. This book was a gift to my daughter for helping to type the transcript. While traveling on a trip to Japan I took the book with me. (26 hours on a airplane gives you plenty of time to read)
This book is better then I anticipated. The information flows very well and is easily understood. I was on the fence…. being a Christian, I always considered Christ to be a Pacifist. This book thoroughly debunks this myth for what it is.
If you are on the fence like I was, this book is for you. If you have any questions about your responsibility as commanded by the Bible this book is for you. If you are simply an owner of a concealed carry permit this book is for you. It will answer your questions from every angle.
Straight forward answers for today’s “gun control” dilemma.
