Editorial Reviews


'This book is unique in providing systematic comparisons of the three Abrahamic faiths in terms of key theological and ethical concepts, particularly as they relate to peace and violence.' - Rev. Dr. David Smock, Senior Vice President, U.S. Institute of Peace

'This is a book that many of us have been waiting a long time for. We are tired of seeing faith twisted to be a barrier of division or continually portrayed as a bomb of destruction. We know in our stories and in our scriptures, in our minds and our hearts, that religion can be a bridge of cooperation. This book shows us how. If our faiths are to be one of the solutions to conflict rather than part of the source, the practices of Just Peacemaking will need to spread far and wide.' - Eboo Patel, Founder and President, Interfaith Youth Core

'This collection of essays is rich in hermeneutical insight and historical example that give life to the 'just peace' norms within Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Speaking at just the right time, the voices of these scholars and activists make clear religion's critical contributions to peace. They challenge us all to tend these teachings so they bear the fruits of shalom.' - Rachel S. Mikva, Rabbi Herman Schaalman Chair in Jewish Studies, Chicago Theological Seminary

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this as a required text for a course on faith-based peacemaking. I appreciated the bridging of three Abrahamic texts (or excerpts from texts) to that they may be used as vehicles for peace rather than discord. The contributors do a fair job of doing this, from what I can tell as someone from outside of those traditions. The book is a little dry at times, but otherwise informative.
