Overview

"This book asks-and answers-all the questions that rumble in the back of my mind as I think about how to be faithful to my religious tradition while working side by side with people of many different faiths to engage in building peace. The book truly meets the practitioners of peacebuilding halfway--addressing our dilemmas, theories, and tactics with theological rigor." --Lisa Schirch, -Lisa Schirch, Director, Partners Advancing Human Security; Professor of Peacebuilding, Center for Justice and Peacebuilding, Eastern Mennonite University. "This compact volume speaks to the many factors of Jesus' practical relevance for the challenges of contemporary peacemaking. In the spirit of such peacemakers as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Kraus presents a christocentric vision as a corrective to Christian ideologies that have rendered Jesus irrelevant or condoned violence as a means to peace--and as a bridge to other faith traditions through the very dialogical process needed for others to consider Christianity a genuine partner for peacemaking in the world today." --Larry Dunn, Associate Professor of Peacemaking and Conflict Studies, Fresno Pacific University. "If you are a Christian interested in peace, if you are a Christian justice or peace practitioner, if you are Buddhist or Hindu or Jewish and interested in understanding connections between your own faith and Christian approaches to peace-then this book is for you." --Howard Zehr, Professor of Restorative Justice, Center for Justice and Peacebuilding, Eastern Mennonite University, in the Foreword.
