Beyond Violence

Religious Sources of Social Transformation in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam

Edited by James L. Heft, S.M.

Description
In an age of violence committed in the name of religion, how can religion become a vehicle for peace, justice, and reconciliation? And in a world of bitter conflicts - many rooted in religious difference - how can communities of faith understand one another? The fruit of a historic conference of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim scholars and community leaders, these essays focus the transformative powers of three monotheistic traditions to provide new beginnings for people of faith committed to restoring peace among nations through peace among religions.
