Living by the Sword: the Ethics of Armed Intervention by Bishop Tom Frame

The 2003 New College Lectures were delivered by Bishop Tom Frame , an Alumnus of New College. As Bishop to the Australian Defence Force , Dr Frame was well placed to make comment on the ethics of armed intervention. The highly successful series of lectures is now available in an outstanding book Living by the Sword: The ethics of armed intervention (UNSW Press). The book was released on Anzac Day 2004 and has been widely acclaimed. It was runner up in the Australian Christian Book of the Year awards.
