The Church and peace

Bagh, Prem
June 4, 2015

Source: (2001) Paper presented at the Theology and Culture: Peacemaking in a Globalized World conference. Bienenberg Theological Seminary, Switzerland, 25-29 June. Typed manuscript (copy).

In this paper Prem Bagh contends that the Church in India is called to be an agent of peace and reconciliation. To support his contention, he surveys various conflicts besetting India: religious; class; the upsurge of subaltern groups; and gender. Theological perspectives relevant to conflict and peace are examined in relation to the mission of the Church. In view of India’s situation and the Church’s mission, the author proposes steps the Church in India should take to promote peace.
