Description

How should Christians respond to violence against them? In this practical, Christ-centered book Sunday Agang recounts his own journey from being an angry young pastor eager for revenge to being a peacemaker. He writes about the use and abuse of Scripture in the context of violence and points to Christ as our supreme example. The book also contains many examples of ordinary people working out their theology of peace in practice. Study questions encourage us to reflect on our own experiences of violence and to develop creative strategies for responding to violence without compromising the kingdom values by which we live. The book is intended for pastors and young adults.

About the Author

Sunday Bobai Agang has deep personal experience of the violence between Christians and Muslims that roils his homeland, Nigeria. He lost a beloved pastor and a close relative to it. His experience led him to focus his doctoral thesis at Fuller on the sources of such violence and the way Christians should respond to it. It has also led him to found Gawon Ministries to provide humanitarian and spiritual care for Christian and Muslim widows and orphans. He is currently the provost of a major seminary in Nigeria, where he trains future leaders for the church in Nigeria.
