Borrowed Items Ship free with Membership
This book shares some of the new conversation between members of the Historic Peace Churches (Mennonites, Quakers, and Brethren) as they reflect on their theology in light of the World Council of Churches’ current Decade to Overcome Violence. It includes updated presentations rooted in a historic gathering of theologians of these three traditions, in Switzerland in 2001, at the beginning of the Decade. Offered are fresh readings of biblical and theological concepts as well as reflection on contemporary challenges and opportunities.

These 16 chapters plus other materials examine theological understandings in the light of current world realities. This includes reflection on the reality of globalized culture and structures of power, and on the role of national histories. Chapters also reflect on identity and context and how these shape understandings of peace. Authors look at biblical models of peacemaking but also explore the way concepts of land and place, in Christian and in other faith traditions, contribute to peace. Reflection from a variety of contexts, including Nigeria, Korea, Colombia, Paraguay, the British Isles and North America, adds richness to the collection.
