From all corners of the world, both inside cities and in the remote countryside, the cry for "just peace" rings out loud and strong. But, as many will note in this book, the cry for just peace isn't enough, for just peace requires active faith, working hands, and willing hearts.Gathered in this volume are essays written from a wide variety of perspectives, religious traditions, nationalities, and ages (from a sixteen-year-old high school student to an eighty-four-year-old senior professor) that seek to offer insight toward answering one question: How are "just peacemaking," faith formation, and discipleship connected within a twenty-first-century context?
Glen Stassen (Ph.D., Duke University) is Lewis B. Smedes Professor of Christian Ethics at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. He he is the author of Just Peacemaking: Transforming Initiatives for Peace and Justice; Living the Sermon on the Mount and Kingdom Ethics with David Gushee.
