Richard Harries, "The Christian concept of peace"

Richard Harries, former Bishop of Oxford and a prolific writer on the ethics of war, discusses what Christians mean by the word 'peace'.

"Living Without Enemies: Christian Responses to War and Violence" is this year's St Martin-in-the-Fields autumn lecture series. In the year that much of the world remembers the descent of Europe into the chaos of the First World War, we reflect on what we have learnt from war and how those who believe in a God of Justice and Love can respond.

Richard Harries was Bishop of Oxford (1987-2006), and is currently an active Life Peer. He is the award-winning author of numerous books on the interface of Christian faith and wider culture, including the ethics of war. He has lectured widely, and his voice is well known from the BBC’s programme Today. Recent books include After the Evil: Christianity and Judaism in the Shadow of the Holocaust (2003); Faith in Politics? Rediscovering the Christian Roots of Our Political Values (2010); and The Image of Christ in Modern Art (2013).
