In The Audacity of Peace, Scot McKnight sketches a peace ethic, or a peace witness, that embraces the embodied self-denial of Jesus to the point of the cross, which through the resurrection is vindicated by God. As such, a peace ethic volitionally and communally participates in the cruciform pattern of the life of Jesus. Through the power of God’s grace and the indwelling Spirit of God, the participant in the way of Jesus is transformed into a Christoform life. A peace ethic is a lived theology whose discerning witness transcends the specific principles and ideas of that theology.
In the My Theology series, the world’s leading Christian thinkers explain some of the principal tenets of their theological beliefs in concise, pocket-sized books.

Discipleship and Unity: Bonhoeffer’s Ecumenical Theology presents a fresh approach to church unity and discipleship from a familiar voice. Building constructively from the thought of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Cole Jodon offers an account of ecumenism in which the church is understood to be united as the person of Christ — a unity that is concrete today through active obedient discipleship. To develop this theology, Jodon draws from Bonhoeffer’s ecumenical engagement, which is deepened through the theology of Bonhoeffer’s wider corpus. Jodon illumines Bonhoeffer’s dynamic understanding of the church, its unity, and the manner in which that unity is made concrete in the world. At its heart, this book serves to advance an ecumenical theology enlivened by the living and present Christ who calls his church to follow after him together.
