Christian Peace and Nonviolence:

A Documentary History

A comprehensive survey of 2,000 years of Christian voices for peace, this comprehensive reader recounts the Christian message of peace and nonviolence from the Sermon on the Mount to the 21st century. Through testimony by the con-fessors and martyrs of the early church, the voices of medieval figures such as St. Benedict and St. Francis, as well as Erasmus, and the Lollards, Anabaptists and Quaker abolitionists, “Christian Peace and Nonviolence” presents a coherent story in which the peace message of Jesus is restored to central place. Later sections highlight many of the great prophets of modern times, including Tolstoy, Dorothy Day, A.J. Muste, Thomas Mer-ton, Daniel Berrigan and Oscar Romero. Their challenge remains timely and urgent.

In May 2011, Elizabethtown College launched a redesigned website. * Revamped from the inside out, the new website features an updated design, a dynamic home- page, enhanced navigation, and an im-proved user experience. The website caters to internal and external audiences, equally serving the needs of prospective students and faculty members, staff members and current students.

Not only does the website feature bold colors, vibrant graphics and updated photography, it also contains fresh content, including student profiles. Each academic department webpage highlights current students and alumni by way of profiles, while the Surprise Yourself ! page shares more in-depth stories of how our students and faculty members carry on the Elizabethtown mission. Sprinkled throughout the website are sliding graphics and videos, providing interactive elements.

The single MyEtown page has been re-placed with four audience gateways: Current Students, Faculty/Staff, Parents, and Visitors. Each gateway features links and information relevant for its intended audience. A fifth gateway links directly to the alumni website. An updated news and events section is in place, and the implementation of shareable content across the website—such as RSS feeds and promotional graphics—allows for easier, more targeted delivery of information. Websites often are the first point of contact, especially in higher education, and are highly influential in the decision-making process. According to a July 2011 report re-
