Stephen D. Jones [BPFNA]
In his latest book, Stephen D. Jones identifies four chapters in Jesus' ministry as a teacher of peace and shalom, and he helps us see the centrality of shalom to Jesus' ministry and teachings. Recognizing the challenge of interpreting Jesus' central teaching, the kingdom of God, to persons in the 21st century, the author suggests, "Today, people might better respond to the Shalom of God, an anticipated time in which God's way of fulfillment, hope, well being, nonviolence and justice will be revealed. The Shalom of God is 'at hand' when all things work together as God intended. Jesus is the peaceteacher of the shalom on God."
