About-

There is hope - even if it is "Hope in a Fragile World", as the concluding chapter of Mission as Ministry of Reconciliation puts it. At the very heart of the gospel of Jesus Christ is a message of hope and reconciliation. Nothing could be more relevant and more necessary in a broken world than this Christian message of hope and reconciliation. ... I would like to congratulate the editors of Mission as Ministry of Reconciliation, for they listened carefully and planned with farsightedness. … This rich book offers a valuable elucidation of the importance and the understanding of mission as ministry of reconciliation. It expounds its practical implications in a variety of settings. It unites perspectives from different church traditions, including the Lausanne Movement and the Catholic Church. It takes the interfaith aspect into account and also speaks about the socio-ethical implications of mission.
From the Foreword by Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tvei

Endorsements & Reviews-

True reconciliation is a question of justice: justice in dealing with the past, justice in our processes of government and law, justice in our economic development. I believe that our reconciliation depends on the things I often have spoken about: empowering our youth, creating jobs and opportunity, and spreading development to all our people, so that progress belongs to everyone.
Her Excellency Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of Liberia

Reconciliation is very relevant in our Christian faith because the core of our Christian faith is about reconciliation, between God and us as human beings. We are reconciled through Jesus Christ. That is why we can be reconciled to each other, as sinners. We know that it is also a commandment in our Christian faith that we shall be reconciled with our neighbours, even with our enemies. And we shall forgive each other. So the core values in our Christian faith are relevant for reconciliation processes in society and in a religious framework.
Kjell Magne Bondevik, former Prime Minister of Norway, currently Director of the Oslo Center for Peace and Human Rights
