No More Cheeks to Turn?

by Sunday Bobai Agang

When a Christian has “turned the other cheek” only to be slapped on the other, what options remain? How should Christians respond to violence against them?

These are not questions Sunday Agang takes lightly, for he has lost family and friends to violence in his home country of Nigeria. He understands what it is to be angry and want revenge. In this book, he tells of his own journey from an angry young pastor to a peacemaker. The questions Dr. Agang asks throughout are intended to help Christians understand the practical implications of a Christ-centred theological response to violence.
