Nurturing Peace

Theological Reflections on Overcoming Violence

Edited by: Deenabandhu Manchala

Nurturing Peace presents a series of theological reflections in support of the World Council of Churches' Decade to Overcome Violence (DOV), 2001-2010. In an era of conflict, injustice, and inhumanity, churches and other religious organizations are renewing their efforts to seek the things that make for peace. Nurturing Peace contains a discussion of insights and challenges that have arisen, such as affirming human dignity and the integrity of creation, reawakening the church's responsibility regarding the use and abuse of power, and being peacebearers/becoming peacemakers. These reflections invite people of faith to become more deeply involved in confronting the spirit of a violent age.
