Forgiveness, Peacemaking, and Reconciliation

by David K. Ngaruiya, Rodney L. Reed

In this fifth volume from the Africa Society of Evangelical Theology, contributors explore forgiveness, peacemaking and reconciliation as necessary prerequisites for human flourishing. Ranging from biblical studies and church history to medical ethics and public theology, this collection offers a rich diversity of voices and perspectives as each author reflects on God’s heart for conflict alleviation within the contexts of their own communities, nations, histories, and academic disciplines. Taken together, these contributions offer profound insight into both the particularities and generalities of God’s transformative, healing work in the world, and how we, the church, are called to partner with that work – in Africa and beyond.
