In order to have peace man must first find at-onement; peace is the result of a change within man in which union has replaced alienation. Thus the idea of peace, in the prophetic view, cannot be separated from the idea of the realization of man’s humanity. Peace is more than not-war; it is harmony and union between men, it is the overcoming of separateness and alienation. ― (1966a: You Shall Be as Gods. A Radical Interpretation of the Old Testament and Its Tradition, New York (Holt, Rinehart and Winston) 1966, p. 167.)
