For anyone interested in the idea of peace in the Bible, and in our theology of “peace”, I’d love to get some feedback on a very early rough draft of an essay I’m trying to put together to get a better grip on what the Bible has to say and what that means for us. It is very rough, but it essentially develops the idea of peace as wholeness (as is understood through the concept of “new creation”).
The biggest obstacle to the article, I think, is that I didn’t discuss the use of the term in the gospels. But as I said, this is me moving roughshod through a very old topic. As I said, I’d very much appreciate feedback.
