These essays by biblical scholars show that friction in the church between evangelism and peace activism is neither helpful nor biblical: mission and peace are inseparable throughout the biblical canon. Those who seek God’s reign are called to proclaim the gospel of peace.
"These insightful essays build a careful exegetical case that the coming of God’s reign calls us to participate in the mission of proclaiming shalom. By tracing this theme through the diverse individual witnesses in the canon, this volume illumines the unity of biblical theology and rebuts claims that the Bible underwrites violence. By reminding us that peace stands at the heart of the gospel, it serves as a prophe-tic summons to the church in our time.” —Richard B. Hays, The Divinity School, Duke University
