Beyond Violence

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

Edited by James L. Heft

A Fordham University Press Publication

In an age of terrorism and other forms 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 essays in this important book take bold steps forward to answering these questions.
