NO MORE CHEEKS TO TURN? (SUNDAY BOBAI AGANG)
When a Christian has “turned the other cheek” and been slapped on both, what options remain? Is it appropriate to respond with violence (sometimes disguised as self-defence), or does Christ hold us to a different standard?

How should Christians respond to violence against them? In this practical, Christ-centred book Sunday Agang recounts his own journey from being an angry young pastor eager for revenge to being a peacemaker. He writes about the use and abuse of Scripture in the context of violence and points to Christ as our supreme example. The book also contains many examples of ordinary people working out their theology of peace in practice.
