". . .to guide our feet onto the path of peace"
A new book by Fernando Enns
This book is a collection of sermons by Fernando Enns over a broad range of topics: reconciliation, nonviolence, religion's role in violent and nonviolent conflicts, the crisis regarding welcoming refugees, and an encouragement to take steps in the World Council of Churches' Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace.
"In his sermons, Fernando Enns is able analyse the biblical texts with depth, that makes them informative for current questions and topics. He does not shy away from challenging texts, for example those who speak of God´s final judgement"
Renke Brahms, Representative of the EKD (Evangelical Church in Germany) on questions of peace.
