Orbis Books - Jesus Christ Peacemaker: A New Theology of Peace - by Terrence J. Rynne
Paperback: 256 pages (Aug 21, 2014). 6 1/5 x 9 1/5.
This path breaking book shows how the early church took seriously the “hard sayings” of the Sermon on the Mount, put them into practice even in the teeth of violent repression, and, as a result of imitating Jesus’ lifestyle, converted much of the Roman Empire.
A new theology of peace that renders the just war theory near mute by making Jesus and his teachings the cornerstone of both theory and practice.
Terrence J. Rynne, Ph.D., is a faculty member of the Archdiocesan Seminary at Mundelein, and professor of Peace Studies at Marquette University. He is the author of Gandhi and Jesus (Orbis 2008).
