FIGHTING FOR PEACE by Carol Howard Merritt & Tyler Wigg-Stevenson


FRAMES- Barna Group a series of books that provide an in-depth study of Christian philosophy, I chose “Fighting for Peace: Your Role in a Culture Too Comfortable with Violence (Frames) ” as a book to review, currently there are a bout 10 topics to choose from.
I don’t know what I expected when I looked at the title Fighting for Peace: Your Role in a Culture Too Comfortable with Violence (Frames) and quite frankly after reading the book I am not sure how I would classify it.
FIGHTING FOR PEACE is a mini-reference book on the concept of peace in the world today and the responses of believers. Such statistical data as American opinions regarding guns broken down by faith contrasted with a discussion on “Would Jesus Really Turn the Other Cheek?” (pages 26-28) add relevance to Upon completion of this book the reader will have developed a better understanding of what he or she believes as well as why he or she believes it.
Though Christian based do not expect to see Bible verses. When introducing the concept behind the series FRAMES the introduction uses the analogy of a eyeglasses, each book assist the believer in seeing the teachings of the Bible clearer. Fighting for Peace: Your Role in a Culture Too Comfortable with Violence (Frames) gives understanding to the various ways violence has infiltrated the lives of believers and how to be proactive in restoring peace one person at a time.
I recommend this book because it is a necessary read. I would suggest it be used not only for personal growth and development but Small Group Bible studies as well.


I received a complimentary copy of in exchange for an honest and fair review.
