One would think that "peace," a term that occurs as many as a hundred times in the New Testament, would enjoy a prominent place in theological and ethical textbooks. But it is surprisingly absent. "Covenant of Peace" seeks to restore to New Testament theology and ethics the peace that many standard texts have missed.

One would think that "peace," a term that occurs as many as one hundred times in the New Testament, would enjoy a prominent place in theological and ethical textbooks. Yet it is surprisingly absent. Willard Swartley's "Covenant of Peace" remedies this deficiency, restoring to New Testament theology and ethics the peace that many works have missed. In this comprehensive yet accessible book Swartley explicates virtually all of the New Testament, relating peace -- and the associated emphases of love for enemies and reconciliation -- to core theological themes such as salvation, Christology, and the reign of God. No other work in English makes such a contribution. Swartley concludes by considering specific practices that lead to peacemaking and their place in our contemporary world. Retrieving a historically neglected element in the Christian message, "Covenant of Peace" confronts readers anew with the compelling New Testament witness to peace.
