The Vietnam War and Theologies of Memory develops a theological analysis of the American war in Vietnam and constructs a Christian account of memory in relation to this tragic conflict.

  • An elegantly written reflection of memory and forgiveness, this unique work explores the ecclesial practice of memory in relation to the American war in Vietnam

  • Questions how and why we choose to remember atrocity, and asks whether it is ever ethical to simply forget

  • Explores the theological categories of time and eternity, and the ideas of thinkers including Aquinas, Augustine, and Barth

  • Reveals broader insights about history, memory, and redemption

  • Resonates beyond the field of theological inquiry by offering a broader analysis of war entirely relevant to our time

Keywords: Christian ethics, war and ethics, war and remembrance, Vietnam war, redemption
