Sam Wells, "Can there ever be a ‘just war’?"

Sam Wells, vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields, discusses the concept of a just war as part of autumn lecture series.

"Living Without Enemies: Christian Responses to War and Violence" is this year's St Martin-in-the-Fields autumn lecture series. In the year that much of the world remembers the descent of Europe into the chaos of the First World War, we reflect on what we have learnt from war and how those who believe in a God of Justice and Love can respond.

Sam Wells has served as a parish priest in the Church of England for more than 15 years – ten of those in urban priority areas. He spent seven years in North Carolina as Dean of Duke University Chapel. He is also Visiting Professor of Christian Ethics at King’s College, London. Sam has published over 20 books, including works on Christian ethics, local mission, Christian discipleship and what Anglicans believe. He became vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields in 2012.
