The events of September 11, 2001, have stirred anew many old and enduring religious questions. Why does God permit evil? How should people of faith respond to violence, terror, and fear? Can peacemaking be patriotic?

These collected essays, articles, sermons, interviews, and letters reflect the heartthrob of Christian leaders and thinkers as they struggle with profound questions of faith and seek to be people of peace in a world of terror. As seeds of faith and hope, their reflections provide excellent resources for individuals and study groups searching for meaning and hope in the midst of terror. Questions to ponder, lists of resources, and a short leader’s guide make this useful for Christian education classes.

Here more than fifty Christian leaders struggle with the events of September 11 and the aftermath of individual, community, national, and international response. These resources offer suggestions for peace churches and all religious people as they probe difficult questions emerging from the rubble. The essays in this journal of faith call for peacemaking and hope, exploring biblical themes of forgiveness, enemy love, and nonviolence as alternatives to revenge and militant "justice" in reacting to terrorism.

An online study guide is available for this title.

"Military action to destroy terror is like clubbing a gone-to-seed dandelion head. We sustain the myth of why we are evil and assure more recruits." —John Paul Lederach, University of Notre Dame, author of The Journey Toward Reconcliation

"All our actions must be directed toward the goal of just reconciliation, because justice is an integral part of reconciliation." —Miroslav Volf, Yale University
