Presentation: Scriven’s book focuses on 4 key areas: Eschatology (God’s kingdom values), Creation (humans help God remake the world), Christology (Jesus was a radical Jew & God’s face on earth), Ecclesiology (the church is God’s beloved community on earth).  He highlighted 4 key themes: Faith’s promise in coming peace emboldens us; SDA story is a grasping for radical hope; the SDA way of life should be a response to grace & a commitment to blessing everybody; as a part of the “remnant” we must be peace-makers.  The Hebrew word shalom means food, safety, prosperity, well-being, love as well as peace.
