Subverting Hatred: The Challenge of Nonviolence in Religious Traditions sheds light on the mixed messages and conflicting testimony that emerged from this study and underscores the central questions for religious individuals everywhere: Does my faith have a fundamental message about nonviolence? If it does, what behavior must I follow if I take seriously the message I receive? Is there a mandate for some kind of civil or political action?
This book is a valuable resource in universities where courses of study in comparative religion are offered, in peace studies curricula, and in introductory humanities programs. Subverting Hatred is Published by Orbis Books in association with the Boston Research Center as part of its "Faith Meets Faith Series."Daniel L. Smith-Christopher,ed, Daniel L. Smith-Christopher
