Our intention is to make this section a growing library of resources, links and
downloads focused on Christian peacemaking. Below are just a few samples which we
hope will increase over the coming weeks and months.
Fig Tree is a new initiative to engage the Christian community on peace and security issues. We
aim to preach the gospel of peace in word and deed, and to build and support the Christian peace
community here in the UK.

Easter Faith and Empire: Recovering the Prophetic
Tradition on the Emmaus Road by Ched Myers
In first-century Pax Romana, Christians had the difficult and
demanding task of discerning how to cling to a radical ethos of
life - symbolized preeminently by their stubborn belief in the
Resurrection of Jesus - while living under the chilling shadow
of an imperial culture of domination and death. Today
Christians are faced with the same challenge: to celebrate
Easter faith in the teeth of empire and its discontents.
