Shalom: A Study of the Biblical Concept of Peace
14 Sessions, written by Donald E. Gowan.
Shalom shines biblical light on the issues and unsettled mood of our times. Today, more than ever, we cry out for shalom. See what the Bible says. Old Testament scholar Donald E. Gowan unravels the multiple biblical threads of this eternal quest in this masterful exploration of the Hebrew concept "shalom" and the Greek "eirene." Peacemaking is a central concern of the church and the world today.
