Billy Mitchell declares that peace building is an imperative for those who profess to serve Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Peace building is not a technique, but a process of moving from violent responses to conflict through nonviolent activism to a position of peace and reconciliation. With all of this in mind, Mitchell goes on to describe a biblical view of peace, to locate restorative justice at the heart of Christian peace building, and to contrast restorative justice with a retributive model of justice.
