Abstract: This essay is a Christian exploration of coercive elements in two versions of Christianity: American Protestant fundamentalism and John Milbank's theology as outlined in Theology and Social Theory. Coercive elements in the fundamentalist tradition are discussed, and a reading of Christ is offered that shows his opposition to this kind of coercion. Potential historical and conceptual explanations for the emergence of coercion within this tradition are offered, with reference to the work of George M. Marsden and Gordon E. Michalson Jr., respectively. Milbank's theology shows a radical contradiction between Christianity and coercion, and thus initially shows promise for escaping this kind of coercion. However, he is finally shown to remain violent in his assertion of Christianity as the only possible non-violent tradition.
