What if Christians did more than offer thoughts and prayers in response to gun violence? Ethicist Michael Austin argues--from a biblical but nonpacifist perspective--that we can impose firearms restrictions to make our society safer and less fearful while still respecting the rights of gun owners. God and Guns in America is a thoughtful, measured, and articulate treatment of a polarizing topic that is too often treated with more heat than light.
