Steve Chalke on Shalom

Shalom, a word that appears over two hundred and fifty times in the Hebrew Scriptures, is a kaleidoscopic vision of what life is like when lived in line with God’s agenda.¬† It incorporates contentment, health, justice, liberation, fulfillment, freedom and hope.

Steve Chalke, The Lost Message of Jesus (Grand Rapids: Zondervan 2003), p. 37.

What a beautiful definition for one of the most important words in the bible!
