Struggles for Shalom is a collection of essays by biblical scholars about peace, justice, and violence in ancient Jewish and Christian texts, written to honour the life work of Mennonite scholars Perry B. Yoder and Willard M. Swartley. In this volume, twenty-three authors - colleagues, former students, friends, and others influenced by Yoder's and Swartley's scholarship - add to the honourees' work in appreciation for their shared focus on biblical texts' lessons of peace.

Specific texts and topics include Eccl 3:1-9 and time for war, Ezek 14:12-23 and God's retribution, Luke 22:31-61 and Peter's sword, the temple cleansing episodes in John 2 and Mark 11, sectarianism and violence in manuscripts from the Dead Sea, violence in creation in the Hebrew Bible, Chronicles as utopian literature, peace and violence in Paul's writings, and globalization in biblical studies. This collection is diverse and ambitious.

For church and academy, and for anyone curious about what Scripture has to say about peace and violence, this book delivers focused study of peace and violence across the Testaments.
