Item Description...
The Gospel Places Peacemaking at the center of Christian identity. Over the centuries, however, churches have divided over the role and place of the peacemaking imperative in their lives and teachings. This volume offers deep ecumenical discussion of the relationship of the church to its peacemaking mission from the standpoints of history and the contemporary context. Contributors representing ten major faith traditions -- Lois Y. Barrett, Alexander Brunett, Murray W. Dempster, Donald F. Durnbaugh, John H. Erickson, Eric W. Gritsch, Jeffrey Gros, Paul Meyendorff, Lauree Hersch Meyer, Thomas H. Olbricht, Thomas D. Paxson Jr., James F. Puglisi, John D. Rempel, Alan P. F. Sell, and Glen H. Stassen -- address this crucial topic from the perspective of their own churches and explore paths that could lead to the reconciliation of existing differences.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a much needed addition  Jan 5, 2002
For those wanting an orientation to the breadth of Christian thinking on the proper relationship between Church and State, particularly as it concerns war, there is no more current collection than this one. Particularly in times when many churchgoers in the West may be wondering whether it is right to be waging war against a largely unknown enemy, this collection is startingly broad and eminently readable. Rempel, furthermore, is no mere academic, but an accomplished peace practitioner working at the United Nations.
Peacemaking in the Christian Church  Jun 8, 2001
Peace is said to be a central theme in Christian scripture, but through the ages, different churches have persued this each in their own ways. There is an ecumenical effort under way now to bring unity to Christainity and peacemaking is one of the areas of hope. This book is the result of a consultation put on by the National Council of Churches to find ways to bring unity to Christainity. There are 11 essays by 10 different demoninations printed here. They are fascinating. As much as I enjoyed reading the essay by the Quaker (being one myself) I also really enjoyed reading the essays from the Lutheran, Mennonite,Orthodox, Brethren, Catholic, Refromed, Asseblies of God, Baptist, and Church of Christ perspectives. The essays speak of both the history of each church in terms of peacemaking, as well as thier current views. There was a lot I didn't know about the changes in attitude in regard to the just war tradition, for example. I wasn't aware of how other churches have grown and changed in the last forty years or so. I enjoyed this book very much and found it pretty accessible (for a non-academic).
