Speak Your Peace: What the Bible Says about Loving Our Enemies
Is nonviolence irresponsible? Is peacemaking naïve?
In Speak Your Peace, Ronald J. Sider, author of the Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger, plumbs Scripture, building a persuasive case that Jesus meant what he said when he commanded us to love our enemies.
With candour and logic, Sider takes on enduring questions about violence and nonviolence, showing how the contemporary church in a warring world has largely set aside Jesus’ call to love our enemies and traded its birthright in Christ for a stew of nationalism and militarism.
Ignoring what Jesus said about killing is a huge theological mistake. Returning us to the inescapable call of the Son of God, Sider reminds the church of its true vocation in a world of hatred and war.
Includes questions for reflection and discussion.
