From the cover: Aug 25, 2005
From the back of the book: Mennonite Studies, 2003. BV2073 .B43 Anabaptist biblical scholarship has led the way in the late twentieth century in creative and challenging analysis of issues related to peacemaking. This book is a major contribution to this tradition. Here Anabaptist scholars interact with contemporary scholarship at all levels, entering into debates on biblical texts. The authors establish not only that themes of peace and mission exist in a clear and fascinating relationship but also that people can no longer think of peace in the Bible without discussing mission in its Hebrew and its early Christian varieties.
