Item description for Transforming Violence: Linking Local and Global Peacemaking by Robert Herr & Judy Zimmerman Herr...
Overview This is a collection of writings about peace. Many of the 17 authors have a Christian perspective, but other viewpoints represented include Muslim, mystic, and secular. Each chapter is a serious attempt to understand peace initiatives and movements around the world and what makes them effective or unfruitful. The book is based on the assumption that almost all peoples desire local and world peace. Writings explore the history of modern conflicts, such as Bosnia and South Africa, and peacemakers' efforts and successes. Authors note the role of women, churches, synagogues, mosques, and nongovernmental organizations, as well as the successes of poltical organizations such as the United Nations.
Publishers Description How do Christians think about peacemaking in a new millennium? What can we do about ethnic and religious conflicts? How can we create peaceful communities and influence the world system?
This book is a gift from Fellowship of Reconciliation and the historic peace churches (Mennonites, Brethren, Quakers) to the world church.
