This chapter highlights the need for Christians to work ecumenically towards a culture of peace with justice, particularly in Asia. The chapter underlines the significance of a public theology that engages creatively with the academy, the church and society. It takes up the example of the early Christian community that confronted and tranformed the Greco-Roman cultures of the First Century CE by upholding the Biblical mandate of building peace for all. It then examines the Asian context and presetns the Asian contribution to the Chrisitan understanding of peace.
