Muslim and Christian Reflections on Peace : Divine and Human Dimensions
When Muslim and Christian scholars met in 2001 for a symposium on inter-religious dialogue as a contribution to world peace, little did they know that September 11th was less than three months away. The events of that tragic day and other conflicts in Afghanistan, Palestine / Israel, Kashmir, Pakistan, Chechyna, and Iraq underscore the urgency of such dialogue. The papers in this volume explore how people of diverse faiths can communicate and promote change in the face of adversity.
