9780340502907: Shalom: The Bible's Word for Salvation, Justice and Peace

The biblical challenge of shalom is one which ought to draw all Christians together in a common struggle so that God's will might be done and God's kingdom might come on earth as it is in heaven. People, as well as structures, need to be transformed. People who are caught in oppressive structures need to be liberated from the values and perspectives inculcated by these structures. The shalom maker, as a result, is involved in a mission of conversion--converting people to a new understanding and way of life. This conversion, based on God's love for them in Jesus, frees them from old patterns of thought. If we struggle for shalom, we shall suffer because we are actively confronting and resisting the structures of oppression and working for the liberation of powerless and oppressed people. Shalom love is not love at a distance, not love in the abstract, not love in the rocking chair--it is the love of confrontation, of strike, of protest, and of disobedience to the structures of violence. Shalom love is suffering love because it is militant love struggling for human liberation, justice, and shalom, which is God's will for our world.

About the Author:

Perry Yoder is professor of Old Testament at Associate Mennonite Biblical Seminary, Elkhart, Indiana. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in ancient Near Eastern languages and literature. He also studied at Hebrew University, Jerusalem.

Before taking his present assignment in 1984, he taught at Blufton College (Ohio) and Bethel College (Kansas). Between these two terms, he served for two years as People's Teacher of the Word, an itinerant mission of teaching the Bible in local congregations sponsored by Mennonite Voluntary Service.

For four months in 1984, he visited base Christian communities in the Philippines and entered into discussion and dialogue about justice issues. During this period, as well as during a similar visit in the summer of 1985, he tested and refined the ideas developed in Shalom: The Bible's Word for Salvation, Justice , and Peace.

Among other books that he has written are From Word to Life: A Guide to the Art of Bible Study (1982) and Toward Understanding the Bible: Hermeneutics for Lay People (1978).
