I really appreciate your comments re Christians and the military. Can you provide a more detailed reference on Driver's book? -- Chris

The reference is: John Driver, How Christians Made Peace with War (Scottsdale, Pennsylvania: Herald Press, 1988). This explains exactly how the early church pacifist position became militaristic, with the advent of the church state in the 4th century.

If you are considering purchasing the book, this link may help you.
