Religions and Nonviolence:
The Rise of Effective Advocacy for Peace
Written by Rachel MacNair
Part 1: “Nonviolence in Religious Traditions” showcases each faith group, what’s common among them all, and how human thinking has developed on nonviolence. When considering how each individual religion has countered violence, all of the issues in the consistent life ethic are considered.
Part 2: “Religion in Nonviolence Traditions” considers different nonviolence practices and theories. It discusses religious insights and practices in advancing their use.
Many books have covered the nonviolence tradition in one specific tradition or several related ones, but this one offers an overview of many, one by one. This will advance the practice of nonviolence, the insights of religion, interfaith dialog, peace studies and religion studies.
