 Reclaiming the Gospel of Peace:       
                 Challenging the Epidemic of 
                             Gun Violence
                  Sharon Ely Pearson, editor

Anglican Communion News Service Staff states:

This important book's genesis was a meeting of more than 300 Episcopalians who gathered in Oklahoma City in April 2014 to renew their commitment to the Gospel call to make peace in a world of violence.

Through deep conversation, prayer, and skill building the event empowered the Episcopal Church to address violence and reclaim its role in society as workers for nonviolence and peace. The book was one of the outcomes of the gathering.


The book, which includes a study guide, is divided into five sections:

  • Proclaim: The Gospel
  • Sustain: The Witness
  • Reclaim: The Response
  • Pray: The Work
  • Engage: The Next Steps

Topics are offered in the areas of advocacy, education, liturgy, and pastoral care that churches can use to address the culture of violence within and outside of the Church.


Church leaders including Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church Katharine Jefferts Schori have contributed to a book that "aims to help dioceses, congregations, and individuals reclaim the Gospel message of peace for our society."

We note:  
Two Episcopal Peace Fellowship leaders,  Allison Liles and Bill Exner, were approached by editor Sharon Pearson to contribute to this project.  Allison's sermon, "The Binding of Isaac"  is offered in Section 1.  Bill's "PeaceMeals: Connecting with Gun Shops" provides a practical local action,  included in Section 3.
