One would think that "peace," a term that occurs as many as one hundred times in the New Testament, would enjoy a prominent place in theology and ethics textbooks. Yet it is surprisingly absent. Willard Swartley's "Covenant of Peace" remedies this deficiency, restoring to New Testament theology and ethics the peace that many works have missed. In this comprehensive yet accessible book Swartey explicates virtually all of the New Testament, relating peace--and the associated emphases of love for enemies and reconciliation--to core theological themes such as salvation, christology, and the reign of God. No other work in English makes such a contribution. [back cover]
