Editorial Reviews

“A thoughtful and provocative work sure to stimulate significant conversation for years to come.”--Ravi Zacharias, author and speaker“This book responds to the challenge posed by the religiously motivated violence of 9/11 to moderate Islam and to main-line Western thinking about religion and its relationship to political life. The authors are solid, the essays probing, the insights offered likely to endure.”--James Turner Johnson, Professor of Religion, Rutgers University “Rarely does one find a book in which the perspectives offered are as diverse as they are provocative and well grounded. This is an essential read for everyone--citizens, educators, religious and governmental leaders--who want to become more critically, and more creatively, engaged with one of the fundamental issues of our time.”--Sharon D. Welch, Provost and Professor of Religion and Society, Meadville Lombard Theological School“This volume completes the fascinating series of books on the impact of 9/11 on various areas of the common life.  It evokes fresh reflections on the doctrines of ‘just and unjust war,’ pacifism, and the relationship of universal ethical principles to national sovereignty and para-state violence.  This is a valuable contribution to the study of how events do or do not shape ideas, and how comprehensive worldviews interpret historical events.”--Max L. Stackhouse, De Vries Professor of Theology and Public Life Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary
