The Prophetic Voice and Making Peace

The Prophetic Voice and Making Peace, General Editors: Matthew W. Charlton and M. Kathryn Armistead; ISBN: 978-0-938162-68-1

Hear prophetic voices of campus ministers and college and university chaplains. By speaking in a prophetic way to the issues that impact the lives of college students, this book embraces the possibilities of peace for God's people, which is the ground of human flourishing. Written by campus ministers and college and university chaplains, as well as by staff members of the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry, these essays convey the belief that young people, and especially college students, are given gifts of life when they are presented with the opportunity to be heard, to make a difference, and to bring peace to their world. The essays cover five key topics for campus life: ecology and environmental ethics; interreligious understanding and dialogue; systemic and interpersonal racism; sexual ethics; and Christian vocation.
