This book attempts to prove that God would never allow human beings to kill or fight as enemies to each other. This meritorious work tries to clarify that there are two apposing views on the war or killing or violence in the Bible. Passages in the Bible which supports God's permission for war are disproved as views of human writers. Passages which oppose war/killing are pointed out as truths similar to God's truth. The book presents the probable truth that is meant to satisfy all open minded theologians.
