The gospel places peacemaking at the center of the identity of the Christian church. Over the centuries, however, churches have divided over the specific place of this 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 address this crucial topic from the perspective of their own churches and explore pathways that could lead to the reconciliation of existing differences.
