Product Description

One would think that peace, a term that occurs as many as one hundred times in the New Testament, would enjoy a prominent place in theological and ethical textbooks. Yet it is surprisingly absent. Covenant of Peace seeks to restore to New Testament theology and ethics the peace that many works have missed.

In this comprehensive yet accessible book Willard Swartley explicates virtually all of the New Testament, relating peace---and the related emphases of love for enemies and reconciliation---to core theological themes such as salvation, Christology, and the reign of God. No other work in English makes such a contribution. Swartley concludes by considering specific practices that lead to peacemaking and what place these might have in our contemporary world.

Remedying a historical deficiency in biblical scholarship, Swartley's book confronts readers anew with the compelling New Testament witness to peace.
