Publisher's Summary

We know Jesus the Savior, but have we met Jesus, Prince of Peace?

When did we accept vengeance as an acceptable part of the Christian life? How did violence and power seep into our understanding of faith and grace? For those troubled by this trend toward the sword, perhaps there is a better way.

What if the message of Jesus differs radically from the drumbeats of war we hear all around us?

Using his own journey from war crier to peacemaker and his in-depth study of peace in the Scriptures, author and pastor Brian Zahnd reintroduces us to the gospel of peace.

    "Subversive"

    This is probably one of the most important books of our time, and it is written by a very brave author.

    "I f I only had one book. "

    I have read a few hundred books overs the years and of all of them this has been the single one to have the greatest impact on my life. If I only had one book to read over and over going forward this would be it.

    "Shaken, Challenged, and Driven to Prayer"

    My tradition and background has never seriously probed or considered peace. Peace is personal and internal. War is a necessary evil, and if anybody can bring good of it, we (USA) can. I have read and pondered the defense of pacifism, but I have never been challenged by such a prophetic word as this book. Now what to do?
    Brian Zahnd has shaken me, challenged me, and driven me to prayer. His book has worked its work quite effectively. The surgeon's scalpel has removed the cancer, but now for recovery. As a local church pastor, I have a whole lot of thinking to do. I know that I cannot remain where I am. I have been moved.
    Many questions remain. Brian did not answer the very specific "what ifs" that many of us have. World War 2, Hitler, Imperial Japan, etc... However, Mr. Zahn has decided to lay the axe to the root and let us deal with the branches. This book is a prophetic word to our time and place. Read it expecting your copy or Kindle to fly across the room a few times.
    Read and wrestle. Please don't dismiss.

    "be ready to take some notes!"

    There were a lot of moments on my commute when I had to pause, rewind, and take notes. A lot of thoughtful and difficult insight. Solid work.

    "The Gospel of Peace Is Our One Hope"

    What Brian Zahnd has written is the gospel of Jesus I have known all my life. I memorized the Sermon on the Mount and took it to be a literal instruction for how I was to behave as a Christian in the world. As I have gotten older, I have been blindsided by the level of violence and revenge that I hear rising in the words and actions of some believers. It is incongruent. It is foreign to me, and I have been taken aback. A Farewell to Mars was a refreshing read (and a wonderful listen), one that made me cry at some points, one that convicted me of where I need to realign my loyalties, and one that helped me see that Jesus, the Prince of Peace, truly does save all of the world--from the abstractest ideologies to the most concrete weapons of destruction. Jesus saves.

    "A must Read!!!"

    Reading this for some will be hard to swallow truth, but truth nonetheless. For others it will be a relief that refraining from joining the political battlefield of nations, empires and superpowers is exactly what Jesus did and the example Christians should follow. His revolution is the Kingdom of Heaven under the banner of peace not war.
