War and the Bible
by St. Nikolai Velimirovich, translated by Fr Radomir Plavsic and edited by the clergy and monastics of the Serbian Diocese New Gracanica and Midwestern America.
Available for the first time in English, this modern Serbian American saint wrote this remarkable book in 1927, giving a Biblical explanation concerning the calamity of calamities – war.
This important and timely book about the Orthodox understanding of war explains in depth the history of war throughout history and poses key questions such as where is God in war, and why does He allow it to happen? St. Nicholai also gives the reader his prophetic and remarkably accurate vision of World War II. Written in a simple, moving, and clear manner, St. Nicholai puts to rest many anxieties about war and revolution in our day.
