It is an indisputable fact that peace is one of the most sought situations in the world and yet one of the most unattainable. Why? There are many reasons for this unsatisfactory situation. One reason for the situation of war, strife and instability is because human beings do not actively participate in peacemaking activities. In this regard the author investigates the Biblical meaning of the concept of peace and its implications for societal life, especially for South African society. A strong plea is made for the development of a science of peace (irenology).
