Drawing on the experiences and lessons of over forty years working in reconciliation, in Northern Ireland, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, Peter B. Price explores what it means to respond to the biblical call to ‘seek peace … and pursue it’ (Psalm 34:14). What is required of Christians today in the light of the increasing number of wars, insurgencies, holocausts and genocide, is a deeper understanding of what true peace making costs, and an answer to the question: ‘Can Christianity continue to sanction war?’
Peter B. Price was Bishop of Bath and Wells from 2001 to 2013, and General Secretary of the USPG. His previous books include Playing the Blue Note and Undersong. He is chair of the NGO Conciliation Resources and Bishop Protector of the Anglican Pacifist Fellowship.
