oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Peace, conflict and religion in South Africa
South Africa has recently emerged from a brutal and turbulent past characterised by various forms of aggression as a country still trying to escape the grips of violence, which manifests itself in many areas of daily life. Within the Bible, and specifically the New Testament, peace figures prominently as a concept of interest and importance and is highly promoted - although sadly neglected - in South Africa's history. This article investigates the continuing and contemporary relevance and value of the New Testament's directives on peace for the South African context.
