Summary "This is a book about peace; specifically, the ways that Christian communities have engaged with peacemaking in New Zealand. Following on from Saints and Stirrers, which examined Christian peacemaking and opposition to war in the period from 1814 to 1945, the focus of Pursuing Peace in Godzone is on the period from the Second World War to the present - the period in which New Zealand's peaceable image and reputation as 'God's Own Country' grew and flourished. Peace has motivated New Zealand Christians in compelling ways, resulting in some remarkable stories. Some of these stories, such as the protests against war, nuclear testing and the Waihopai surveillance base, have grabbed media attention and attained a degree of notoriety. Others, such as the efforts of various churches to heal rifts in their communities or aid those affected by conflict, have been virtually invisible to all but those most immediately affected. Taken together they reveal a multifaceted but deeply influential thread of Christian peacemaking within New Zealand culture"--Publisher information.
