The Call of the Child

Cultivating Peace in a Climate of Conflict

Hi <<First Name>>,

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.

— Jesus

Starting with Jesus' startling statement, The Call of the Child explores the relationship between walking in Divine 'sonship' and living out a peacemaker lifestyle.

As an American who has lived half his life in Norway, Bruce McKibben has written at the convergence of the 'mercy' personality of Norwegian culture and the 'leadership' personality of American culture.

The first section of The Call of the Child looks at four fundamental peacemaker perspectives:

  • Grace: The Cross reveals God's heart of forgiveness for sin, so there is nothing left to punish and no longer any call for anger. Jesus' story is about reflecting the heart of a Good Father rather than a God who is angry about sin.
  • The Principle of the Cross: True victory comes through apparent loss. True wisdom is found in apparent foolishness. True strength is seen in apparent weakness. True peace can never be achieved through the exercise of force.
  • The tragedy of feeding from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil: Learning to feed on the Tree of Life is a huge paradigm shift, and a huge source of peace. It is a freedom which threatens the religious spirit, and might challenge some traditional perceptions of sanctification.
  • Forgiveness: Holding on to an offense or requiring recompense, regardless of how extreme the wrong suffered, quenches peace. This is diametrically opposed to the nature of God, who absorbs our wrath.

The second section of The Call of the Child explores a dozen realms of peace, with testimonies and practical applications. Chapter five introduces this section, portraying the breadth and depth of peace in light of the longings of the Father. It invites the reader into an exciting journey of cultivating peace and discipling nations.

When we carry the Kingdom of Peace in our lives, it changes our surroundings and peace breaks out. This is the Call of the Child. Request your review copy today.

Praise for The Call of the Child

“Bruce McKibben writes about living in the power and liberty of ‘sonship before the Father.’ He does not write from theory but from experience. Yes, he writes on sonship from the position of sonship. He writes with insight about being a peacemaker, about living out of the Tree of Life instead of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. His practical applications are refreshing and thought-provoking. Be prepared to be provoked, and read with an open heart—here is much wisdom to be gleaned.”
Mike Bickle, International House of Prayer, Kansas City
