Peacemaking in Nigeria and Rwanda. Tyndale Theological Seminary Theses Series.

“Adeshina Jayeola addresses the incessant cycle of religious violence between Muslims and Christians, especially in the northern states of Nigeria. He argues that ending the insurgency of Boko Haram may not necessarily address the perennial religious conflict. Against this backdrop, he proposes a non-retaliatory response by Christians to the attacks of Boko Haram. His study in part examines the general perception of the true identity of Boko Haram and the applicability and workability of the biblical principle of peacemaking in order to end the cycle of religious violence in Nigeria.”

“Jean Pierre Methode Rukundo promotes the importance of proper evangelism and discipleship as a key to preventing another genocide in Rwanda. He suggests that for the Church to carry out her mission effectively, she needs to target grassroots ecumenical communities and preach the gospel, focusing on individual conversion, the sanctity of human life, the reduction of poverty, and a family-based reconciliation and peacemaking amount other ideas. As a survivor of the genocide, Rukundo’s commitment to peacemaking is especially noteworthy.”
