“The twelve essayists (Gilligan, Yoder, Bok, Toulmin, Rendtorff, Moltmann, Minear, Larson, Smart, Parekh, Berrigan, and Levertov) present a thought-provoking and stimulating range of views on the issue of peace. The essays are grouped in four themes: just war, perpetual peace, and the nation-state; Christian conceptions of peace; Hindu and Buddhist views of peace; and peacemaking in terms of prophecy and poetry.” — Journal of Ecumenical Studies
