Marc LiVecche is the managing editor of Providence: A Journal of Christianity & American Foreign Policy and Scholar of Christian Ethics, War, & Peace at the Institute on Religion and Democracy. Prior to these roles, he completed PhD, graduating with distinction, at the University of Chicago, where he had the tremendous honor to work under the supervision of the political theorist and public intellectual Jean Bethke Elshtain, until her death in August, 2013. Marc’s dissertation, With Malice Toward None: The Moral Ground for Killing in War, takes a classic just war view of the question of killing in its theological and ethical dimensions in part as a response to the crisis of moral injury. Before all that, Marc spent twelve years doing a variety of things in Central Europe — ranging from procrastinating, to helping build sport and recreational leagues in post-communist communities, to working at a Christian study and research center, to leading seminars on history and ethics onsite at the former Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi concentration camp in Poland. This latter experience allowed him to continue his undergraduate study of the Shoah; a process which helped permanently inoculate him against pacifism.
