Chaplaincy highlights the need for faith and society to re-engage
with vital moral questions. Military chaplains continue to operate
within the dynamic tension between faith communities, the armed
services and society, offering a distinct moral presence and
contribution. Drawing the reader into the world of the military
chaplain, this book explores insights into the complex moral issues
that arise in combat (especially in Afghanistan), and in everyday
military life, These include the the increasing significance of the
Law of Armed Conflict and the moral significance of drones. Through
the unique chaplain's eye view of the significance of their
experience for understanding the ethics of war, this book offers
clearer understanding of chaplaincy in the context of the changing
nature of international conflict (shaped around insurgency and
non-state forces) and explores the response of faith communities to
the role of the armed services. It makes the case for relocating
understandings of just war within a theological framework and for a
clear understanding of the relationship between the mission of
chaplaincy and that of the military.
