Event Details

Book of Peace Book of Power

sponsored by www.PreachingPeace.org

Featuring Walter Wink and Tony Campolo

The Bible reveals itself as a book of transforming Power
only as interpreted in the light of God’s Peace!

Jesus came as the Prince of Peace.  How is it that for almost two millennia Christians have interpreted the Bible as a warrant for war, pogroms, inquisitions and witch hunts?

Join us at this groundbreaking event as we form an overarching hermeneutic for the 21st Century.
A way of interpreting scripture that takes seriously the intellect of modern man and
our commitment to follow in the faith and footsteps of our Risen Lord Jesus.
 He whose life, death, and teachings remain the full & final revelation of his Abba, our God!

Topics presented and discussed in working groups will include:

  • Use of the Old Testament in the New Testament
  • Methods of Nonviolent Biblical Interpretation
  • Problems Related to Doctrines of Inspiration
  • Contemporary Theological Peace Paradigms
  • Theologians who Engage Alternative (Peace) Hermeneutics
  • Use of and Interpretation of the Bible in the Early Church Relating to Peace and Violence
  • Anabaptist vs Reformation Hermeneutics
  • Use of Biblical Texts Relating to Inspiration/Interpretation from a Peace Perspective
  • Book of Peace, Book of Power: Rediscovering the Authority of the Bible brings noted biblical scholars and theologians together who will show that the power of the Bible can only be released when it is interpreted from a peacemaking perspective, when it bears witness to the God of Peace.
