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:
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.
