Drawing on the experiences and lessons of over forty years working on the frontline of reconciliation and peace building, in Northern Ireland, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, Peter B. Price explores what it means to respond to the biblical call to ‘seek peace … and pursue it’ (Psalm 34:14).
What is required of Christians today in the light of the increasing number of wars, insurgencies, holocausts and genocide, is a deeper understanding of what true peacemaking costs, and an answer to the question: ‘Can Christianity continue to sanction war?’
