Item description for Peace on Earth: Roots and Practices from Luke's Gospel by Joseph A. Grassi...

Overview
In Peace on Earth Joseph Grassi emphasizes the practical means Jesus suggests to make peace a reality. He focuses on the roots of peace and justice found in the nonviolent and compassionate life and teachings of Jesus. Grassi teaches that Luke's summary of Jesus' teaching in the "Sermon on the Plain" has a central place as a practical guide for believers to develop a life of peace and nonviolence in imitation of Jesus as a nonviolent Messiah. Luke's Jesus goes to the roots of true peace through the practice of nonviolence, love, compassionate justice, true repentance, and forgiveness. External power and domination are renounced and replaced by inner power, humble service, and a priority for the needs of the poor and marginalized.

Reviews - What do customers think about Peace on Earth: Roots and Practices from Luke's Gospel?

Good resource  Jan 18, 2009
This is a good resource when researching the Judean culture at the time of Jesus' birth. It was specifically purchased for use in a sermon but is also an excellent addition to the pastor's resource library.
