In 1998, at the eighth Assembly of the World Council of Churches in Harare, Zimbabwe, a motion was tabled -- and subsequently accepted by the delegates that the World Council designate 2001-2010 as the "Decade to Overcome Violence". In this book Fernando Enns, the delegate who proposed the mo-tion in Harare, presents the theological foundations underlying his call for the churches of the world to work toward overcoming violence. Enns proposes that both Christian ethics and ecclesiology need to be based on a trinitariatilview of God as creator of the world, incarnated in Christ, and present in the Holy Spirit, urging all Christian churches to heed the call to peace and non-violence.
