Peter Kuzmic | Embracing Peacemaking and Reconciliation

Feb 3, 20170 comments

In a world full of division and conflict, the church needs to embrace the ministry of reconciliation and “blessed are the peacemakers.”

In this interview, Professor Peter Kuzmic helps us understand how to do this.

Peter Kuzmic is the Distinguished Professor of World Missions and European Studies at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. A native of Slovenia and a citizen of Croatia, he is one of the foremost evangelical scholars in Eastern Europe and is considered an authority on the subject of a Christian response to Marxism and on Christian ministry in post-Communist contexts.

In this filmed interview, I talk with him about Christian approaches to peacemaking and reconciliation. Peter Kuzmic was influential in bringing about the Dayton Peace Awards and served as an advisor on reconciliation for national leaders in the Balkans, the United Nations and the U.S. State Department. He is an honorary member of the Croatian Helsinki Committee for Human Rights and has received the Presidential Award of Croatia. He also received the Helsinki Award for Human Rights and Religious Liberty in recognition of his work in promoting interreligious dialogue.
