Each book in this series provides an in-depth look at a major recurring theme in the Bible and its lasting theological influence. The series is designed to enhance the reader's understanding of our biblical heritage and its relevance to faithful life today. Brueggemann traces the concept of shalom -- the biblical vision of one community embracing all creation -- through the Old and New Testaments. He offers an in-depth analysis of the major scriptural references, links the vision of shalom to the search for peace and justice in the world today, and shows we can work toward it in our congregations and in our everyday lives.
