"The most insightful and persuasive treatise for Christian peacemaking"
"'Jesus intended that his followers should never kill anyone!' After you read If Jesus Is Lord, you will be able to reject this claim as unworkable in the real world, but you will not be able to dispute it. A compelling and challenging volume."
--Miroslav Volf, Yale Divinity School
"Ron Sider is a rare bird among biblical interpreters: he combines well-grounded scholarly attentiveness with a lively, practical passion for a world of just peace. Our long-term debt to Sider is deep and beyond calculation. This book comes at just the right time."
--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary
