The authoress of the review begins her text with the statement that the book “Szukaj pokoju i dąż do niego” (Ps 34, 15). Biblia o pokoju [“Look for peace and strive for it” (Ps 34:15). The Bible on Peace] by Rev. Prof. Tomasz Maria Dąbek OSB touches upon a subject which is crucial for contemporary people and dramatically pertinent in the world shaken by wars, conflicts, and affected by hatred. What the reviewer considers particularly valuable in the analysis carried out by the Tyniec Benedictine are references to Hebrew and Greek terms conceptualizing various aspects of the biblical notion of PEACE, starting with the individual’s inner life and their relations with God and finishing the social behaviour. She recommends the analyses presented in the book to both experienced Bible researchers and beginner readers, for whom they can become a valuable guide to biblical truths. In the reviewer’s opinion, the book may become the basis for further scientific research in such fields of research as linguistics, semantics, cultural studies or pedagogy.
