The accumulation of power by arms companies and the influence of militarism have continued for over a century. The time has come for people of faith to address these issues and to take seriously Jesus' words, "those who take the sword will perish by the sword." Dr Alan Storkey is an economist, sociologist and artist. He the author of War or Peace: The Long Failure of Western Arms. Elaine Storkey is a theologian, philosopher, social scientist and broadcaster. Norman Hamilton (OBE) is convenor for Public Affairs for the Presbyterian Church in Ireland and was previously the minister of Ballysillan Presbyterian Church. Public Theology explores the relationship between Christian conviction and the broader social and cultural context in which the Christian community lives. The Catherwood Lecture in Public Theology has been an annual event since 1998.

We learn from our gardens to deal with the most urgent question of the time: How much is enough?
