Jesus Christ Forbids War - A Tract by John Edminster

I have been meaning for some time to add the following link to the sidebar of my blog. I think it deserves wide notice and comment. The author, John Edminster, is a Friend in my Meeting and in many ways I feel him to be a soul-mate. I hope that Friends profit from reading his tract.

The Tract is: Jesus Christ Forbids War

P.S. The above post has been updated with a different URL for the text of John Edminster's tract than the one I originally provided. From this "new" URL it is possible not only to view the tract but to download it as a PDF or WORD document. John tells me that the email address given on the site is outdated and will be corrected. He can now be reached at instead of the yahoo address formerly given.

Has he made a print version of it? If he hasn't but would like to, I would love to design (or help design) it for him. Text work is what I'm best at, and I hate seeing Quaker publications looking less than good quality.

I would love to see more Quaker tracts like this -- not trying to promote Quakerism per se, but what should be the radical implications of Christianity.

John had a very nicely-done print version of this tract that was distributed at 15th Street Meeting and at various other places for some time. I don't know whether he still has copies. I think the on-line version was posted for him by someone else, though I'm not sure.

I do know that John would like to circulate the tract more widely, and that he would probably welcome any suggestions about how to go about it or help in doing so.

I will forward to John Zach's offer of help with design of a text presentation.

As a result of hearing from John via email I have changed the URL in this post so that it points to a different version of the tract - one that John himself prefers and one that makes it available as a PDF or WORD document.

This may or may not remove the need for Zach's services as a designer.
