We know Jesus the Savior, but have we met Jesus, Prince of Peace?

When did we accept vengeance as an acceptable part of the Christian life? How did violence and power seep into our understanding of faith and grace? For those troubled by this trend toward the sword, perhaps there is a better way.

What if the message of Jesus differs radically differs from the drumbeats of war we hear all around us? Using his own journey from war crier to peacemaker and his in-depth study of peace in the scriptures, author and pastor Brian Zahnd reintroduces us to the gospel of peace.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Leaning heavily into the work of critical theorist René Girard, Zahnd argues that peace—which he defines as a courageous, faithful belief that Jesus has defeated the need for humans to kill one another—is the heart of the Christian message…Written in simple, unequivocal language for a Christian audience, this work mounts a persuasive challenge to any Christian theology that supports military might.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Founder and pastor of Word of Life Church in St. Joseph, MO, Zahnd was a typical conservative evangelical cheering on the first Gulf War. Here, he shares his personal odyssey away from blind patriotism and toward the gospel of Jesus…Readers of John Howard Yoder and those interested in Christian views on current politics will be challenged by this thought-provoking work that is filled with personal anecdotes.”
