A Farewell to Mars: An Evangelical Pastor’s Journey Toward the Biblical Gospel of Peace

Jesus taught that peace is the radical reality of the kingdom of God. But are we bringing a message of peace to this world? Author and pastor Brian Zahnd walks readers through his own journey from embracing violence to pronouncing peace, using Scripture, prayer, study, and reflection.

From the prophecies of Isaiah to the teachings of the Prince of Peace Himself, Scripture unveils a God who desires peace for His people. God’s kingdom would not be managed and defended by wars, violence, and vengeance. This kingdom rises up out of the rich soil of sacrifice and surrender. In Farewell to Mars, Brian Zahnd challenges readers to follow the teachings of Jesus, just as we strive to follow the person of Jesus.
