Attitudes towards fighting and warfare - Christianity

BBC Bitesize Religious Studies provides a brief overview of Christian perspectives on war and peace. It covers just war and holy war and provides examples of key texts from the Bible.

Classroom suggestions:

a) Ask students to identify the key vocabulary used in the religion they are studying about war and peace. Then create a glossary of these terms as a revision card.

b) Students compare Christian teaching on war and peace with one other religion they are studying. What do they identify as the most significant difference between the two religions on this topic, and why?
