In this challenging study, Frazier discusses “an awareness, developing gradually...that the vast majority of Christian commentators rarely, if ever, do more than rather vague, generic justice to the New Testament message about peace.”
Is he correct? If so, what then is an in-depth theology of peace? Frazier’s book points the way to a new awareness of God’s peace founded on the death of Jesus that produces love and reconciliation.
“Maryknoll Father William Frazier systematically draws out the ethical dimensions of the death of Jesus and through that how the God of Jesus makes peace. This seminal book charts the way to an understanding of peacemaking as foundational to the Christian message. Hence, peacemaking is at the heart of the Good News.”—Joseph J. Fahey, Ph.D.
