A Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace: Global Mennonite Perspectives on Peacebuilding and Nonviolence.

This edited volume includes contributions by scholars, ministers, artists, and NGO workers from around the world who are interested in topics of Mennonitism, peacebuilding, and theologies of nonviolence. The papers published together here reflect the richness and diversity of peacebuilding interests and approaches within the current global Mennonite family and offer interdisciplinary explorations of peace and conflict with attention to historical, theological, and lived perspectives.

The book includes papers based upon research and insights that were shared at the Second Global Mennonite Peacebuilding Conference and Festival (2019) at Mennorode in the Netherlands. The findings presented here are structured thematically with attention to key points of current concern and research—including, among others, studies on historical and current peacebuilding efforts pertaining to migration and refugee care, ecological justice, gender justice, inter religious dialogue, ch u reinstate relations, and racial justice.

This volume with presentations held at the second Mennonite Peace Conference and Festival in 2019 offers deep insight into modern Mennonite reflections on peacebuilding and reconciliations in historical, theoretical, and practical perspectives. The book not only discusses the pilgrimage of justice and peace, but is itself part of this pilgrimage.

Friederike Nüssel, Heidelberg University

This formidable collection of conference papers offering Mennonite theological, ethical, and practical perspectives on peace- and justice^making reminds me once again of the extraordinary gifts, commitments, and reflections that Mennonites bring to the global church. In a time of European war and rumors of global conflagration, this collection could hardly be timelier. Highly recommended.

David P. Gushee, Mercer University

Once or twice in our lifetime, we may come across a beautiful mosaic which is colorful and inspiring. This book is such a mosaic. Whether you are a professor looking for reading materials for peace-building classes, or you are a pastor looking for materials to engage your congregation with the struggle for just peace on earth, or you are a peace activist looking for ideas and breakthroughs, this book has them all.
