Product Description

An illumination of the biblical story which reads like music. Highly readable and engaging, Ott's chapters follow the wide-ranging narrative of God's activity through time. The author sees God as a gracious parent, intent on a restored relationship with humans. It is that ongoing effort which Ott calls the Shalom Project. Realized fully, Shalom includes harmony among humans, and between humans and creation. Ott believes that "God wants a Shalom people," a community of the faithful who together love God and each other, and then live in the world within that strength. This book is the 2004 Selection for Mennonite World Conference's "Global Shelf of Literature." Includes questions for discussion, talkbacks with the author, and an extensive bibliography.
