Conflict and Reconciliation: The Contribution of Religions

Book Overview
Religions are involved in many long-running conflicts around the world from the Balkans and the Middle East to Kashmir and Sri Lanka. All that is well known. Not so well-known are the resources that religions can bring, specifically and uniquely, to the process of peace and reconciliation after conflict. This book looks in detail at the ways in which the search for reconciliation is an obligation, even a command, in particular religions. Religions understand reconciliation very differently, and those differences are made clear in this book. But the quest for reconciliation, however differently it is understood, is an obligation in religions that should be much better understood and employed by those who seek peace in the world.
