Jesus the Peacemaker
Rowman & Littlefield, 1986 - Religion - 97 pages
Jesus the Peacemaker helps restore our appreciation of peacemaking as central to Jesus' life and integral to an authentic Christian life. With the passion narrative as the focal point, the author presents a Christology of Jesus as peacemaker. She raises the question of reconciling warmaking with the gospel of Jesus and leads the reader to understand some of the distortions that led to this.
