About the Book

This addition to peace literature is designed to go back to first principles--the biblical record--to establish a theology and rationale for the role of the Christian peacemaker in the world. The nine chapters in the book, together with the study guide that follows (written by Stan Plett), treat a wide variety of topics including: Old and New Testament teachings on violence, Christian teachings on church/state relations, individual Christians and the state, power and weakness in the New Testament, war and the early church, and exegesis of troublesome passages on the topic of violence.
