Item description for The Way of Peace: Christian Life in Face of Discord by James M. Childs, Jr....
Overview A realistic vision of peace and peacemaking. A social ethical exploration of the roots of violence and peace. Combines moral wisdom and prophetic realism.
Publishers Description In the spirit and style of Paul Tillich, theologian and ethicist James M. Childs Jr. argues that, for Christians, peace poses particular problems because of the permanence of conflict and violence amid the assurance that God and Christ are at work creating peace. Uncertainty, ambiguity, struggle, debate, and tragedy are not avoidable. Christian discipleship and peacemaking, Childs argues, are to be lived in and not despite these realities. Exploring such topics as the church as peacemaker and justice as a way of life, his insightful, accessible, honest scoping of the complex way of peace for Christians brings a welcome view of the personal imperative and social prospects that lie within the gritty redemption wrought by the cross and resurrection.
