About this book

Offering a new interpretation of early Cold War history, this book demonstrates how Christian agency played a pivotal role in the creating of space for the logic of nuclear deterrence and nuclear war, showing a balanced examination of Christians as enablers but, more provocatively, as resisters of nuclear prohibitions.
